And Week 5 brings us back to Ana Morais Soares and Portugal, officially República Portuguesa. Portugal is one of many countries that has an abundance of myth and folklore dating back millennial. This week’s square is entitled Miosotis (Portuguese spelling), which is translated from Ancient Greek meaning “mouse’s ear“, as the foliage is said to resemble the tiny ears of mice for secrets to fall upon and never be revealed. Forget Me Not’s are often used as a symbol of remembrance and to commemorate fallen soldiers and Alzheimer’s patients.
Who doesn’t need a secret keeper square in their blanket????
