We have forget me nots too. I love them, and that is why I go to the mountains to see them. Your Macro is really nice.

Forget me nots..I let them grow where ever they want to grow.
Pick some for a small bouquet to brighten my breakfast table.
Lovely flowers and pictures.

I simply love them! I don't think I have come closer to any of these flowers before.

Macro does make a difference.

They are so pretty but became so invasive in my parent's garden.

These flowers have a special meaning to me as they grew at my grandfather's house when I was very little. Great memory. The "macro" was a great idea for these!

Beautiful flowers in macro.

These are flowers not easily forgotten. It is pretty wet around here too at the moment so I'll probably be able to find some :-)

PS Thank you for the comments! The photo of the ceiling was taken standing "as usual" I used a Canon G11 which has a screen at the rear that can be tilted and swivelled to almost any position. That makes for some interesting possibilities.

I've tried to grow these without success. Such a dainty flower.

Sweet! I think Forget-me-nots were used in lots of Victorian designs.

Maryvel Friesen said...

Nicely done! I wish I have more flowers in my garden to photograph, but I am really not much of a gardener! :( so thanks for sharing yours with us!

Jay said...

These are native wildflowers here in England, but I understand they have escaped in other places and naturalised themselves!

I love them. SO pretty - we have quite a lot in our garden, where (of course) they grow bigger and stronger than in the wild.

First I want to apologize for being so slow making it around, my son got married over the weekend and the extra house guests involved have made me a little slower than usual.

I rarely see forget-me-nots but always love stumbling on them. Lovely captures!
