As a child, we had dear little 4-petaled flowers in our lawn near our pond. I have seen them recently (late April in Connecticut), and looked in a wildflower book. It sounds like they are called Bluets. Is there a way I can get seeds or plants for these lovely little flowers?

Enjoy your bluets - I really love them too!
