Forget Me Not Bracelet

Myosotis, or more commonly known as Forget Me Not has a rich history and meaning behind its humble appearance. It grows an abundance of small blue flowers that have become a symbol of remembrance of true and undying love. The common name "forget-me-not" was calqued from the German Vergissmeinnicht, and first used in English in 1398 AD via King Henry IV. A large number of stories and myths surround the plant, including one of two lovers walking along the Danube River first seeing the bright blue blossoms. The man retrieved the flowers for the woman, but he was swept away by the river and told her not to forget him as he floated away.
