Our dainty mystery seeds from last week were from forget-me-nots, Myosotis sp.
My clearest memories of forget-me-nots are of patches of the cheery blue flowers that were growing along a small creek in the mountains of rural Pennsylvania, where I was visiting with my grandparents. Those plants were probably Myosotis scorpioides, the water or true forget-me-nots. The species was originally from Europe and Asia, but has naturalized throughout much of North America where they tend to concentrate along streams or creeks. In any case, they are part of some of my fondest childhood memories.
What do you remember about forget-me-nots?
