Good to Grow – Forget-Me-Not …and you won’t (forget them)!

Forget-Me-Nots

Forget-Me-Nots

Striking, sky-blue (maybe better than that) with bright yellow “eyes”. There are two kinds (around here) the ones that are short, need shade, and blossom in the spring. But the kind that catches MY eye is the one that grows in ditches along the road. Not as flashy as the “ditch-lilies” found in the same types of areas but once you spot them, you don’t want to take your eyes off of them. The flowers are tiny but plentiful; they like nasty soil and soggy conditions. They may not be for YOUR yard but look for them along the road…you’ll be as drawn-in to their charm as I am
