3rd from the right - Lesser Periwinkle (Vinca minor) – is a plant native to the central Europe. It spreads in colonies around the ground blooming in fairy-tale-like blue in early spring.
On the right - Forget Me Not (what a lovely and meaningful name for these flowers).
Yeah, this is actually a good statement and I guess here is the best time to make clear why flowers evolved this way. And sorry to tell you - they show their elegance and fashion, vanity and pride, they emanate their scents and fragrances not for our pleasures.

The simple fact is that flowers are pollinated by insect and as they cannot chase their pollinators, so their only choice to survive is to attract insects by using all possible means. And let me tell you, some are really very “inventive” yet deeply deceptive - for example some orchid flowers resemble shapes, colors and scents of female bees.
Imagine the enormous frustration of a poor male bee, when “hungry for sex” realizes the scam! Yet, the goal is achieved – the orchid is pollinated by the male angrily “kicking around”…:-).
After this short introduction (just to tell you that we simply “inherited” flowers in all their splendor and magnificence and then quickly appropriated them to serve our mostly emotional needs) - lets take the enchanting walk through the garden of spring flowers in pictures.
The best is that you may have them as you wish, all the year.
You can choose flowers’ photos, download favorite ones to your computer and for the best effect – keep them in your heart whenever you go….
Come back and change flowers not because they faded (I guarantee, their freshness all the time), but because there are so many of pictures of flowers to choose from….
