Wordless Wednesday: Forget Me Not



More crack plants. The white forget-me-nots will not be forgotten, because they have self-sown everywhere. And once upon a time, I planted Heavenly Blue morning glories - they will be glorious again, but no longer heavenly blue. Every year, they come back smaller and more purple, some hybridization genetics thing at work.

I love crack plants. I also love surprises like surprise sunflowers and dill that suddenly appear in my garden from last year's seeds.

I have a real fondness for self-selecting plants. My dad's garden has some long-gone-wild rusty tulips under the lilacs. None of use dare dig them up.

Who wouldn't want to admire such strong survivors?

Those are gorgeous. Also, what's not to like about the phrase "crack plants"?

I love forget-me-nots! Beautiful, spread everywhere, like lovely versions of dandelions.
