09.02.2019 Mum’s the word Monday

Well, not really “a day” but I’m feeling quiet tonight.

Another Meadow-bottle Gentian I was told about by a FB friend.

The more red/purple blooms are a bit different than any I’ve seen before.

    I like the blend of red/purple with colour in the leaves as well. Quietly beautiful.

  2. I wonder whether the redder ones are a natural variant or whether something external caused the different color.


  3. Very unusual flower with gorgeous colors. I really like this photo.

    I don’t mind a little busyness in photos. I’ve found that, especially in the woods, it’s often hard to eliminate potentially distracting elements around a plant, and besides, those elements are part of its world, too. I noticed that some of the leaves on the periphery seem to be damaged in a way that suggests the different colors are the first stages of “something.” Sun scorch, maybe, or lack of even moisture. It really doesn’t matter. The images is lovely, and all of its parts work together.

    • Those other leaves are not the trillium and I thought about moving them out of the frame. But it’s the time of the year for such beginnings of decay and that coincides with the flowering of Gentians so there it is. The busyness is okay as long as it is organized chaos.
