The Forget-Me-Nots Remember

Winter has had an exceedinly firm grip on Wisconsin this year. Many of winter's atrocities could be banished from our memories with the tiniest hint that Spring still exists. Even as late as last Friday we had frost warnings - threatening to kill the very presence we've been pining for. But the forget-me-nots always remember when Spring should arrive and they burst forth at just the right time...snatching us out of the doldrums of never-ending cold, brown dreariness. Don't you just love their mesmerizing color? I can never decide upon gazing at them if they are periwinkle or lavender. So here is my little ode to spring. May it finally come for good.

How pretty forget-me-nots are and such a fabulous colour.
Only problem is once they finish flowering those little seeds stick to everything

Aren't these pretty? I have some purpley-blue ones and pink too. My daughter picks them and we have them in tiny bottles all along the windowsill. Puts me in a spring mood too! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
