  1. I can't be sure from the photo, but they look like forget-me-nots.

  3. love columbines too, have 5 different colours of them myself, 4 of your second pic and 1 of the first one. They are one of my favourites but I'm really not happy with where I have them placed, so i think i'll be finding a new home for them soon...

  4. Definitely not the nots. I've been googling and these have four petals whereas nots have 5. Also they have a white centre. Nots have a yellow centre. Not to mention the height difference. Too many nots in one paragraph?

    I might have to post this over on gardenweb's id forum.

  5. Look up Birdseye Speedwell. It looks like it could be that.

  6. I think you're right Sharon. The leaves are a match as well. Thanks!

  7. I have it here, don't know the name, but it is a vicious spreader. One tiny clump was attached to a plant I bought at a sale and it took over the garden.

  8. it could be Cat nip i have it planted as well and it does have that colour bloom .. i've let it keep spreading as its in a weedy section of the lawn.. so i figure pretty blue flowers is better than weeds..
