In a world of spring pastel blossoms and the bright red/orange/yellow of many tulips this tiny bright blue flower can be overlook, especially when they are in the shade. The sun hit it just so on our mornign walk to make if catch my eye. I’m not sure what it is.
I do not know what this flower is. But I think of them as “bunny bites”.
When I was little my grandma had one and kept rabbits. An early memory I have is of plucking these flowers and feeding them to her rabbits, who devoured them rapidly and wanted more. Strange what sticks in one’s mind from childhood.
Every time I walk by this bush in my neighbor’s yard when it is in bloom I remember. I wonder if Grandma ever noticed that all of the flowers within reach of a four-year-old were missing.
If you know what they are called please let me know.
It is way too soon. I hope they don’t get frostbite.
Forsythia is usually the harbinger of spring. But winter isn’t even here yet.
A little mid-week madness.
First I thought of roses:

Clearly I have a fixation on blue and purple flowers…Maybe an intervention is warranted?

While purple isn’t regularly considered a fall color I’ve been seeing it around the neighborhood.
