forget me knots

i am in love with forget me knots. since i was a little girl i was intrigued by how delicate they are yet how they seem to grow in the most hashes of places. on my way home on the new dirt road i came across several patches. sunday while the rain fell hard i decided to gather some by the roots and see if i can transplant some to grow freely here at home. i also put them in a simple white pitcher and in my flower press for safe keeping.

it is funny how they are called forget me knots for every spring when i come across them i think how could i forgot them, they just might be my favourite spring wild flower, yet dear lily of the valley soon i will say the same about you.

* have  you ever had dandelion and burdock soda, i had not till today.

I think a good way to propagate forget-me-nots is by collecting the dried stalks and shaking them over where you would like them to grow so the seeds sprinkle out. If I remember correctly, it isn't a perennial but an annual (meaning the plant doesn't survive the winter). Once you have them growing in your garden next spring, the plants will do the "work" of spreading the seeds for the following year and so on.

If you wait till they go to seed, you'll be able to scatter them everywhere for next spring...I have them coming up everywhere! I love them as well...so cheery.
