[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Forget-me-nots are the genus Myosotis of flowering plants in the family Boraginaceae.
There are about 50 species in the genus, and among them there is inevitably considerable variation. Nevertheless a considerable number of the species fit the same description, of a small (1 cm diameter) rather flat 5-petalled blue flower growing profusely on straggly stems, flowering in spring. Colour variation is not unusual within species, and white or pink forms are quite likely to be seen. They are popular in gardens, and cultivated forms often show a mixture of colours.
Forget-me-nots can be annual or perennial plants. Their root systems are generally diffuse.
Forget-me-nots are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Setaceous Hebrew Character.
They are widely distributed. Most Myosotis species are endemic to New Zealand, though one or two European species, especially the Wood Forget-me-not, Myosotis sylvatica have been introduced in most of the temperate regions of Europe, Asia and America. Myosotis scorpioides is also known as scorpion grass.

I shot these flowers at a height of about 12000 feet on my way to Sach Pass in Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh. August is the time of the year when the snow on and around the pass melts away and the entire mountainsides are covered with a thick carpet of tiny wild flowers like this one.

Scotland and Indian share both landscapes and flowers I see. A lovely image. Isn't this a great name for such a pretty and charming flower? I wonder how it got to be called this in lot of different countries?....British Empire, I suppose.
best wishes

Incredably beautiful, I always had them in my gardens.

Hi Mr. Ram,
Yes these flowers have the right name. Nobody can forget these beautiful flower. A lovely capture. Thanks a lot for sharing.
