Me Forgetting Not

Each spring for the past several years, I have been posting photos of Forget-Me-Nots.

The story about them is that almost thirty years ago Cuppa asked my father to transplant some of his Myosotis to our yard. He did.

We enjoyed them in our Sarnia garden for the best part of twenty-five years before we moved all of the way across province. When we moved, we brought some f these plants with us — or at least Thesha had a year or two previously.

I thought we might lose Dad’s forget-me-nots completely for a few years because we were down to a few scrawny specimens, but now, almost three decades later and more than 600km/400mi away as well as several gardens later, they are flourishing.

It pleases me to know that they’re all descendants of the few little flowers that Dad transplanted to our previous home all those years and miles ago.

I suppose now that they’re so well established, I should refrain from bothering you with what has become an annual update. 🙂

We also have planted a few allium bulbs, which grow up the branches of our young tree.

Bee on the allium: someday, I'll get that blasted bee in sharp focus.

    Your garden is lovely, both front and back, and I’m glad you got that bee! (Even if it IS a little soft in the focus department…) 🙂

    Flowers are gorgeous AC, and with so many memories attached which make them very special…..:-)Hugs

  4. Ac, you have a nice and what looks like manageable garden compared to our wildflower ones which get a bit wild. We found a lot of forget-me-nots while hiking to CLingman’s Dome in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park…glad you don’t have to go far to enjoy this beautiful little flower.

    Possibly not, if the bee gets you in sharp focus first! LOL

    AC, I always love to see photos of forget-me-nots. Mine are kind of scrawny this year. I’m hoping they don’t die out.
