In no way comparable with the Wet sunset but all the same a small contribution to the theme

Beautiful, Torgny. And thanks for the compliment.

I've had my eye on some bright green buds in our garden on just your theme, but by the time I remember them and catch the light just right, they'll have grown into little leaves like these.

Yes, I looked in the dusk last night and I've missed it. The leaves have grown even bigger than yours, in the space of 2 days. I'll hope for better timing next year.

The garden is lovely, though. These forget-me-nots are present everywhere, including the vegetable patch...

Yes, 48 hours is much at this time of the year. Lovely high contrast picture of the forgetmenots

forget me not

förgät mig ej (old Swedish)

vergiss mein nicht

Interesting folklore and language history


Some say over here that spring has come when the birch leaves are big as mouse ears. The latin name of the forgetmenot, Myosotis scorpioides, means mouse ear and, strangely enough, scorpion-like

Have to blow the dust away and bury the nose in some scriptures. Atjooo!

Thanks for the picture

Torgny
