Fringed Gentian

http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/



Mid to late September is the time for fringed gentians in New England. The blue with a hint of blue-purple is beyond my description. Click to enlarge and enjoy. However, no monitor can catch the true color you see with your own eyes.

I just love BLUE flowers, perhaps because they're so rare. You've brought a pretty BLUE to show us today. Happy Blue Monday.

Those are SO lovely. I think they are even prettier than the lupines I saw blooming years ago in New England. Love that shade of blue. Thank you for sharing...

Happy Blue Monday!

XO,
