Tiny blue flowers - A Pic a Day in May #18

These little blue guys are blooming all over right now. They're tiny, but so numerous that they give the ground a blue tint. They grow among the grasses in and around the vineyard. They bloom in our lawn before they get cut by the mower, but they grow back and bloom again within the space of a week.

I believe these are a variety of myosotis, commonly called the forget-me-not.

We're in the middle of asparagus season now and today I'm heading out to the morning market for another kilo. I want to make steamed asparagus with hollandaise sauce. I've never made a hollandaise (that I can remember), so we'll see how it goes. I'm also hoping for more strawberries and some mushrooms.

  1. Excellent photo of these tiny forget-me-nots -- they are not easy to photograph well as the flowers are so small (only 2-3 mm across).

  3. If you have a hand blender, go to the blog Serious Eats & watch their method for Hollandaise.
