Friday's Flowers: Forget me not

The blue and bright-eyed floweret of the brook, Hope's gentle gem, the sweet Forget-me-not.
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

God named all the plants when a tiny unnamed one cried out, "Forget-me-not, O Lord!" God replied, "That shall be your name."

It's the first Friday in May. A month that celebrates the flowers encouraged by April's showers.

What better day to resume Friday's Flowers posts!

I came across these darling little Forget-me-nots and thought what a perfect flower to start the season!

Happy Friday!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I am wondering if I could have your permission to use your last image of a forget me not flower to incorporate in a craft project I am working on. I would like to give the project away as gifts. Please let me know if you need more details and if this is possible. Thanks!
