Vergissmeinnicht

myosotis flower
“Vergissmeinicht”, Myosotis (probably Alpestris), 2015.

A legend says that this flower was thereby named after a knight, who was walking with his lover along a river, fall into the water when he tried to pick one. While he was drowning, he throw the flower to the woman and said “forget me not”.

A lot of other stories connect it with the loss of a loved one, thus it is usually linked to memory and remembrance.

  1. Oooh, I really like flower photos like that, with the focus on the flower and a blurry background!

    Personally, I think the story is hilarious: I imagine the knight throwing the flower into the face of the woman while screaming maniacally X’D

    (nbtw.: writing comments here is rather hard, because the box is white and text is light grey … which makes is rather hard to see x) Can you make the text at least dark grey?)
