Forget Me Nots (Alaska State Flower) FYI: These seeds turn black and stick to everything. Thus they reseed themselves. I recommend that you pull them out of the ground and toss. I actually give plants away on craigslist every spring. Some people bring me plants in exchange.
another picture of forget-me-nots. a garden can never have too many. they are so dainty. a happy flower if ever there was one. when they are done, sprinkle the seeds with abandon and see what you've created next year.
Forget-me-not. A legend about the origin of the name forget-me-not is as follows. Once a medieval knight and his lady-love were walking beside a river. The knight held a bouquet in his hands. Because of the weight of the armor, he fell into the water. According to the legend, he threw the bouquet at her shouting forget-me-not.
