39812. Blue-eyed-Mary, Omphalodes verna, spomladanska torilnica in Slovenian. Looks like forget me not, Myosotis, but is different: petals are rounded and the ring at the corolla center is flat and white while forget-me-not has a yellow, uplifted ring.

39818. The trail below the Pod stenami (Below the Walls) cliff was just about a meter above the water level ...
