Myosotis discolor, growing on dry terrace. Note: Hairs on undersurface of leaves appear to be straight not hooked as they would be in M. stricta. This might well be M. stricta as the hair morphology was not entirely clear to me.
Growing under a cliff on scrubby, weedy, grassy dunes.

Myosotis (/ˌmaɪ.əˈsoʊtɪs/; from the Greek: "mouse's ear", after the leaf) is a genus of flowering plants in the family Boraginaceae (or Cynoglossum family) that are commonly called forget-me-nots. Its common name was calqued from the French, ne m'oubliez pas and first used in English in c. 1532. Similar names and variations are found in many languages.
