forget me not

Despite dire warnings of cold weather and rain today, we ventured out in the morning and visited, for the first time in a long while, West Wood, just outside Thaxted. It was a lovely, bright mild morning…thanks weather forecasters! Lots of new growth was everywhere including the common spotted orchids that abound here. They are still a little young at the moment so today’s picture is of some new Forget Me Not’s that are starting to emerge.

I popped out into the garden just before the heaven’s opened for today’s deluge and caught this tiny forget-me-not that had recently bloomed. I like the painted effect that the very limited depth of field created.
