Artist's Description

Forget-me-not close up capture. Wonderful blue combined with the green leafs (also called mouse ears) a little treasure enlarged. Shot taken in the garden of a centre of creativity in Holland:
De Klinker Kreatieve Werkplaats Nieuwleusen.

One of the legends about the gorgeous blue flowers:

In 15th-century Germany, it was supposed that the wearers of the flower would not be forgotten by their lovers. Legend has it that in medieval times, a knight and his lady were walking along the side of a river. He picked a posy of flowers, but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted “Forget-me-not.” It was often worn by ladies as a sign of faithfulness and enduring love.
