Giddy For Spring

Spring has arrived!

Lifting everyone's spirits
from such a long dreary winter,
everyone has a new spring in their step

This brave neighbor filled a bed with Forget-Me-Nots

I suppose they are so easy to pull out of the ground
and happy to reseed, 
why not?


This is a long holiday weekend
and the sun is shining,
so I'm running out the door to be outside...

Have a great weekend!

I'm a big forget me not fan - they are such a cheery blue. I'm afraid I let them take over my garden a bit at this time of year and then pull 'em up when they've flowered. Well done for getting your running shoes on! Nice to meet you x Jane

and a lovely photo! :)

I love to see clouds of forget-me-nots. You're right - they are so very easy to pull up when they are no longer bright blue, and there always seem to be masses of them year after year. No wonder you're giddy for spring!

Beautiful snapshot Laura and how I wish these myosotis (forget me not would be mine) (my little clump is not willing to spread much).
Enjoy the bank holiday,

I always have lots of forget-me-nots, my garden wouldn't be the same without them! :) x

Gillian said...

It's lovely isn't it? Those forget-me-knots are beautiful. x

You have such a talent for photography and writing. Is either what you studied in college?

That bed of forget-me-nots is lovely. I have some but they are small clumps. Hopefully they will spread. I love them and it's a shame they don't last very long.

Oh my goodness...at last...let's home the late spring means a really really lovely,dry summer!!(for selfish reasons of course...!)

Thank you, Tina! I did major in English Lit in college, actually :)

I think you can just throw out some seeds in the garden and they will come up quite easily (packet will direct you). You can also start indoors in the winter and plant in the spring. Really easy fellas :)

I'd say forget-me nots are perfect!

Enjoy your long
weekend, Laura!

I used to have the
lovely Forget-me-Nots
in a shade garden,
when we lived in
Indianapolis. This
photo has me wanting
to find a shady spot,
here, to plant some!
