Spring Returns With Memories

Each spring returns these precious tiny blue flowers sprinkled around my yard bring back memories of all the springs I celebrated here, and all cats who’ve shared this space.

Forget-me-nots, native biennial, the flowers are about 1/8″ across, purple when they begin to open changing to blue when fully open. First ones this year. Looks like some hungry insect already had a meal of one of the petals.

The first autumn I moved in here I tossed a packet of free forget-me-not seeds from my bank. The were apparently the native species and they flourished. For almost two decades they filled my back yard each April-May, blooming over several weeks, and I would not cut the grass until they were finished blooming. A few years ago my mower punked out on me just long enough for my yard to become fully overgrown with jewelweed, and the forget-me-nots only bloomed around the edges the following year. They are just coming back now. I welcome them.
