If there was a contest

for the plant that looks the ugliest when it's finished blooming, I think forget-me-not would take the blue ribbon.
Have you ever seen anything uglier?
It's brown, it's moldy and all the little seeds stick like glue to your clothes.

Any of the plants that are right out in front like this one, I will pull right out of the ground.

Then I just run my fingers down the stem to release seeds in the area where I removed the plant.

I always have more than enough of the little blue spring-blooming beauties. Posted by Picasa


  1. Yup, some plants sure don't look too good once they're done blooming. Do Forget-Me-Nots bloom for very long? I was thinking of planting some but now I'm not so sure! lol

  2. Pea,
    it's like kissing a frog --
    you have to put up with a little discomfort to enjoy the prize.

    They bloom for about 3 weeks.

  3. LOL-I have such an aversion to the spent forget-me-nots that I sometimes rip them out mid-bloom!
