Late Summer Wildflowers


Mountain Bog Gentian



 precious flowers of the wild
late summer beauties make me smile
growing in the mountains high
delicate strength in which you thrive
your beauty has me on my knees
admiration for you
turns into a gift for me

 St. John's Wort


 fringed grass of parnassus

  1. Only through you, Tammie, though I've photographed the Gentian many times, would I become aware of its "freckles". The folding of the flower to protect against the elements is ingenious, isn't it? I spoke of you last night at a party - one of the guests was visiting your area last week (in the rain).
