You maybe right because I don't know the ABC of wild flowers except few.

Very nice share Mustansir bhai. Thanks for the effort. The area looks more like Muree, Kaghan and Swat area (Himalayan range) than the Northern Areas which have less vegetation and are lot more stony. And that is where one finds a much larger range of flowering plants, specially bulbs. Deosai plains is a heaven of wild flowers which can not be described in words. Thanks a lot for sharing these pics Mustanir bhai; you have refreshed some very fond memories.

The blue flowers in pic 14 look like the grape hyacinths (Muscari botryoides) to me but the pics are not very clear and I can't see the leaves. So not very sure.
