Mountain Flowers

i think it's relatively rare to get blue flowers (apart from pansies) in perrenials or annuals, and so i'm intrigued that you see so many blue flowers in the Himalayan foothills. and so many shades of blue! so lovely. these flowers would sell like hotcakes over here.

Flygirls, many of the flowers are very small and the height where I captured many of them is around 4000 meters. I am sure they will sell like hot cakes but in a way it is good that one has to travel out to see them, adds to the charm of the journey.

I shared the webshots link with a few colleagues and they say, they have never seen so many flowers in all their life!

i meant they would be popular when sold as plants, there's a huge market for them here. they'd be ideal! i've seen promos for the himalayan blue poppy on gardening shows. but as you say, it's more fun to have to hunt them out, their incaccessibility and rarity makes you appreciate them more.

glad your colleagues liked the photos...they really are lovely. flowers are so simply and satisfyingly beautiful.
