Here is your blue things in nature fact of the day. I have yet to see my first patch of bluets for the year. These dainty flowers are also called Quaker Ladies. I have heard two explanations for the nickname. One is that it refers to how the shape of the petals resemble the bonnets Quaker women wore. The other is that the shades of blue are similar to the shades of fabric they often wore. Whatever the reason for the name, they are delightful flowers and I can't wait to see some on one of my walks. #blue #flowers #natureclub #bluets
