OUT OF SEASON BLOOMS

I certainly never thought of Forget-Me-Nots as a plant that bloomed throughout the summer, but the ones I transplanted from a friend's cottage landscape where they were growing wild certainly have.


It is well past the spring blooming period I expect to find them in, so you can imagine my surprise and delight to see these delicate beauties making an appearance to brighten up my end of season garden.

Out of season blooms can be some of the most magical, catching one unawares and reminding us that nature is never fully predictable.

  5. I have a love-hate relationship with FMN because they are so invasive, but they are also so pretty. The purple color is unusual.
