Forget-Me-Nots For Spring

Frankly, with all the cold weather over the past two months, I thought Spring would NEVER arrive.

I tidied up the garden beds, edged and removed old leaves, and waited. We had snow and below-freezing temperatures. I waited. Then one morning I saw the first Forget-me-nots had opened and I knew that Spring had arrived.

A humble biennial, but so pretty.
