Tag Archives: Iceland


I am in Iceland at the moment, reportedly missing some really nice flowers in the TundraGarden.  The other day I went for a walk in Reykjavik, and saw some forget-me-nots by a fence.  I’m not sure if they were native or not, since there were a number of double-flowered columbines there which I am quite sure aren’t native.  The forget-me-nots were fairly tall, but the flowers were tiny and rather pale.

The ones I have at home are shorter (although getting taller with warmer weather–soon they will be as tall as they were when I got them in Point Hope) and much bluer.
