I love those cute little flowers named "Forget Me Not". Right now we have 3 different colors in our backyard, blue, pink and white. They usually come earlier but the Spring has been so slow that we are getting them just now. Too bad they do not last very long. The garden is coming to life with quite a few perennials out blooming already. Our lilac tree is also blooming, it doesn't have a nice shape, so I am not that happy with it. We also have a lot of lily of the valley.

I only know the blue variety. I'm not sure we have the white and the pink one in Germany.

@MALUSE, At the beginning we only had blue ones, but now the other 2 colors just appeared.

@marlina One wonders where from? I like forget-me-nots. They're a bit like weeds. Once you've got them in your garden, you'll always have them without caring for them.

@MALUSE Some people think that they are weeds, but I love them and call them flowers.

your discussion's title reminds me of the famous novel of the Philippines' national hero

Seems we don't have forget me not here in our place. What we have is, "touch me not", a grass full of thorns and I hated it when it grow in our backyard.

That is neat I have seen those around and didn't know that was their name. I have heard of forget me nots but did not know what they look like. I like the blue ones.

We have a few tulips growing in our back yard and some smaller flowers. When my aunt cut the front yard a few days ago she mowed over the flowers. :(
