Flower for the Day Forget-me-not (Vergissmeinnicht) 4-29

In the wildflower garden near the Frank Lloyd Wright House, the 
Kraus house, there are large areas of Forget-me nots (Myositis genus).


They are a beautiful pale blue.


In his 1947 long poem "Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction," Wallace Stevens 

mentions the forget-me-not, using its scientific Greek-derived name:

It observes the effortless weather turning blue
And sees the myosotis on its bush.
