Forget -me not, the lover’s flower, means ” I love you truly-do not forget me.” The legend behind this bright blue flower’s name is a delight, if sad, tale:
A knight in armor and his lady were walking by a river when the lady spied some pretty blue flowers growing by the water. She admired them, and the knight went to pick them for her. Alas, his armor unbalanced him, and he tumbled into the water, still clutching the flowers. As he went under for the third and last time, he threw the flowers to his love, crying ” forget-me-not…”
( The legend doesn’t say what happened to the lady. We may hope that she stayed true to his wish)
What say you?
