Stunning!!! I’ve been following your blog for quite a while now and I have to say, your photography is something I look forward to every morning!! 🙂
I’m so glad that you start your day with me, Christina. Thank you very much for your kind words and I hope I am able to keep your attention. 🙂
I’m sure you and your blog will continue to do so! 😀
Stunning photo. I just love that blue
Any idea why some of mine have white, not yellow middles – on the same plant?
Simples! Mysotis sylvatica can have yellow or white centres. A little pollen from one variety can make a difference to another.
Thank you, my mind can rest now 🙂
As a story for lovers, forget-me-nots were first mentioned in a legend of a man and his sweetheart who were walking beside the River Danube. They saw the beautiful blue flowers that this plant had growing on an islet in the middle of the river. The man leapt into the water to get the blue flowers for his love. Although the current was strong, the man crossed the river safely and got the flowers. However, on his trip back to his sweetheart, he was swept away in the rapids. Before he completely disappeared, he threw the bouquet of forget-me-nots to his love and shouted forget-me-not.
I love forget-me-nots. Lovely photo 🙂
