    We have Forget-me-nots growing all over our lawn.  Because I like them, I mow around them rather than over them, leaving them to mature and re-seed.  These Forget-me-nots escaped from my neighbor’s property.  They aren’t native, she planted them, but they seem to like the neighborhood and have spread.  
    Forget-me-nots have tiny blue, and sometimes the odd pinkish flowers.  The diameter of the flowers are about .8 cm (1/4 of an inch).  The beautiful blue hue of the petals are accented with a yellow or white doughnut in the middle.  A patch of Forget-me-nots give a nice blue blush when seen from a distance.
