blue flowers in yard

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Mon Apr 08, 2013 11:46 am

I seem to have a very nice crop of these pretty little blue flowers. The picture does not show it, but they are definitely blue. Does anyone have an idea as to what they are?

They are similar Bob, but my flowers only have 4 petals. i believe Dennis pegged them. Not sure how they got here form the SE though.
