The Dirt: forget me nots and e-book review

Back in April I posted about a Mother’s Day centerpiece idea. I planted some Forget Me Not seeds in a basket. You can see the original post here. I’m happy to say the seeds sprouted, the plants grew and I have beautiful Forget Me Not flowers blooming.

They are the sweetest, simplest little flower but the color is so striking.

See that hole in the leaf on the bottom left?

Here’s the culprit… I love that the butterflies are enjoying the flowers but I think their babies are eating the leaves.

It’s okay. There are enough flowers for the butterflies, their babies and me. 

These make me smile.


You know what else makes me smile? Suzy of Suzy’s Artsy Crafty Sitcom. Actually, she makes me laugh out loud. Hysterical stories alternate with artsy genius on the Sitcom. Suzy recently launched an e-book centered around one of her most popular projects – the faux stained glass peacock. The e-book contains the pattern for the Majestic Peacock and instructions for two completely different projects using the pattern. Plus, ideas for seven other projects.   

Suzy’s Majestic Peacock is an original design and it’s stunning. The e-book has step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow and photos highlighting the process.

  1. Aren't those the prettiest daintiest flowers ever? Beautiful pictures! I am going over to visit Suzy now!

  2. Love seeing how these sweet flowers look now! Just pinned this to my "garden inspiration" board on Pinterest! :)

  3. Hi Carolyn, those forget-me-nots make me smile too. When I lived in Canberra my garden was rampant with them, now I have moved up north they won't grow, it is too warm. This post reminds me of their exquisite colour and sweetness, thank you.
