142/366: forget-me-not

The forget-me-not or Myosotis sylvatica, is a pretty little cottage garden flower that seems to spring up everywhere. They are useful for filling empty spaces, as they are relatively maintenance-free, occasionally requiring cutting back.

In 2002 I was amazed to see this specimen, which had a couple of flowers that weren’t the same as the rest. After a little research, I have found pink and white varieties are available, but when most people think of this flower, it is of the blue persuasion.

You may consider this is out of focus, and it probably is, but I prefer to think of it as a flattering soft focus.
