Forget-Me-Not

Down by the riverbed
Carved on a rock
Are these three words...
Forget-Me-Not!
~~~

"HEY wait!!! What about me????
I'll open, I'll open!! I really really will!
JUST GIVE ME A LITTLE MORE TIME!!!
I'm beautiful...REALLY, I AM!!"*
(*Contrary to popular opinion, I am NOT a sour-puss!)

P. S. My mother and her sister both had ~autograph books~ that were signed by their friends, family and secret admirers at the end of their school year. I think mom was at the end of her 7th or 8th grade year when the above was written in her autograph book....

  1. Great shots Annie. Are those in your yard? If so, when I come to get my lily of the valley, I'm getting some of those, too.

  2. Great pictures....I like the little struggling unopened bud :-) Such beautiful flowers! I remember autograph books and also autograph stuffed animals you wrote on. How come you didn't have one?? We also wrote autographs in our school yearbooks.(I was going to sign this with one of the other well-known autographs ...2 sweet, 2 be, 4 gotten...., but the computer won't let me do it right....progress :-)

  5. Good morning!

    How beautiful! I've seen one lone true forget-me-not flower so far this year, but in a couple of weeks, they should be out in full force. They are so pretty!

    Thanks for visiting my blog today. You asked about the Glossy Ibises. They live primarily along the Atlantic Coast and also can be found in Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia. I've seen them in Westbrook and Madison, CT in the past couple of years.

  8. The late bloomers are sometimes the most beautiful! Look how long it takes for a diamond to become beautiful. Wait, does that mean at 80 I might end being a "looker"?

  13. You take such beautiful photographs and your sense of humor is wonderful. I find myself rooting for that little bud, and I must ask -- did he open? See, I've even ascribed a gender to the little guy. You got me. :)
