Blue green

Myosotis (Myosotis arvensis) are currently blooming everywhere around the farm.

Its name comes from the Greek: "mouse's ear", after the leaf. The color is usually blue but can also be pink or white.

The forget-me-not is used to symbolize remembrance by Alzheimer Society, International day for missing children, Child Focus, and for the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide…
