"Remember Me?"

Forget-me-nots bloom in pink buds and blue flowers. Eight different species of forget-me-nots live in Montana, including three natives. Behind the lens. There are legends surrounding forget-me-nots in almost every major language. My favorite is a Persian story that tells of a male angel who was cast from heaven for his love of an Earthly woman with forget-me-nots woven into her braids. He wasn't allowed to return unless his beloved planted forget-me-nots in every corner of Earth. They took to the task hand-in-hand, and upon completion the couple entered paradise together. And now you'll remember this story the next time you see these modest flowers blooming in your own corner of the Earth.
