Tiny blues

These were hidden in the tall grass right beside a tiny stream. Each blossom is only about 1/8 inch across.

  3. I love blue flowers and at only 1/8inch across, that has to be one of the smallest I’ve ever seen. You did very well to capture it with such sharp focus in the image.

  5. I love both plants, speedwells and forgt-me-nots. A few weeks ago my husband repotted a speedwell that had decided to live in a pot with a Japanese Maple and put it outside our dining room windows for me to enjoy. It was brimming with flowers – a fantastic display – and then a wren decided that the flowers were just too good a snack to pass up!

  6. Sorry, typo and I meant he repotted a forget-me-not. It was the latter that the wren enjoyed.

  7. Nicely done for something so painfully small. I love that sparkly blue in the first shot.
    You’ve just reminded me that I have to go visit the marsh speedwells (Veronica scutellata.) They’re also very small and grow in standing water, so I’ll have wet knees again!

  8. Beautiful little flowers. Love the blues. In the spring, the riverbank here is blanketed in forget me nots for a couple of weeks.

    • This is their time here now. They are abundant anywhere near water and a little shade.
