National Forget-Me-Not Day
When is National Forget-Me-Not Day? This holiday is always observed on November 10
National Forget-Me-Not Day is a day to remember family, friends, and loved ones. People use this November 10 holiday to get in touch with family, friends, and loved ones, especially those who we haven’t seen in a while. You don’t want them to forget you, do you!? This day is intended to remember the living. But, some people have used it to memorialize a loved one who is no longer with us. And, that’s perfectly okay.
Did you get some potted plants as a gift? Easy to grow Forget-Me-Not flowers are perennial. They come back year after year and readily spread out in a variety of landscaping conditions. Try them in rock gardens and as ground cover. Additionally, they look good in containers on your patio or deck.
