Today I am in the best place that I have ever been in my life. It is completely peaceful here, full of birdsong and the scent and colour of wildflowers. I am letting go of all that used to be, that was hard work 🙂
So my overly sweet and pretty little friend, you are a Wood Forget-me-do.
A British pound coin has a diameter of 22.5 mm (about the size of a wedding ring, I guess)These flowers look about 7-8 mm across. (Three to the pound) Field Forget-me-do’s are about half that size 3-4 mm. These flowers are also quite flat.
The shape of the calyx pushes the petals of the Field flower up making more of a cup shape out of it.
In both cases the individual flower stalks are about twice the length of the calyx. That pedicle length is key to separating some of the smaller species and so it should be noted.
The large flower of the Wood Forget-me-do is the source of most of the garden varieties.
