I recall that as a youngster I had an early fascination with flowers - perhaps it was the colours; I'm not really sure. And while I don't remember specific instances, I do remember picking 2 varieties to bring home and put in an old peanut butter or other empty jar - dandelions and forget-me-nots.
I used to have a few forget-me-nots growing around the pond but they disappeared a few years ago. They grow rampant at one of my daughters' homes and I took some home with me last weekend. I promise I won't forget them this time.
