Aesthetic alien

Miniature forget-me-not

Miniature forget-me-not

The grass is growing fast in the orchard, especially with so much rain.

But it’s still short enough to reveal all the tiny flowers which are so easily overlooked.

Smaller still than speedwell and scarlet pimpernel (which exists in a midnight blue variety as well here), there’s a miniature world of field madder and tiny, tiny forget-me-nots scarcely visible to the naked eye.

Landing in their midst, a moth with a pattern like the boldest of Tiffany lamps is a complete aesthetic alien.

Compare it with the pink star of the field madder in the bottom right-hand corner!
