Latin name ” myositis ” meaning, mouse ear, is a wonderful sky blue and bright-eyed flower of the brook where they grow naturally and abundantly, and when you encounter them in full bloom it leaves you breathless.

As I start to write this, my mind wonders a little and I’m thinking what would I want to be remembered for, what is my legacy to be? I hope one of caring and giving, that I lived each day as if it was my last and that I helped to bring a little heaven to earth by way of the gardens I helped to grow and nurture. That with time would fade and with a knowing that perhaps others might follow in my foot steps will help to forget me not, for I was a part of something bigger than myself. Just knowing this brings me peace.

In any case, forget-me-not’s are wonderful at self seeding, and very easy to grow from seed. So once you plant them they will follow the wind across your garden and surprise you on where they choose to show up, for that alone I admire them. They like most soil types but do really well in moist conditions where they quickly multiply and create great drifts. Beginning their bloom with the daffodils and tulips.

In the nineteenth century they became recognized as a garden flower as a welcoming addition to the pond and waters edge, and quickly became the symbol of one’s undying love and devotion, and became a gift of love and remembrance.

Forget- me- not’s make great cut flowers and will last in a vase for a week or more, the small bright blue flower clusters will brighten any place you put them and people always seem to notice them. Thus remembering them is easy.

These plants grow in many of the countries of the world and have many legends told about them, one of my favorite is the one  where God after creating the earth comes to name all of the animals and plants and after doing so, he starts to return to heaven when he hears a tiny voice at his feet saying ” what about me? ” He bent down and picked up the little plant whom he had forgotten, and said, ” Because I forgot you once, I shall never forget you again, and that shall be your name.”

When they are in bloom, which is most of the season, I can’t help but to be reminded of so many people and places that have come and gone in my life, some with joy and some with sadness and regret, but always with a knowing that this beautiful little humble flower reminds us never to forget and to go forward with great beauty.

In the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: ” Silently one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.”

A thought; Let’s not forget where we came from and to be aware of where we are going. Forget-me-not!
