Re: Nice shot!

Thank you. I do my best to stop and enjoy the flowers and the small things that make a day in the mountains so amazing. -Sarah

Oh, I just adore this!!

These ever so perfect natural bouquets of forgetmenots as well as enzian that one finds oftentimes in the mountains (I posted myself a photo of an enzian bouquet I found on 2700 meters, above Verbier in Switzerland) are something I just can't resist!!

Like you mentioned elsewhere, this is one of those sites a person has to be willing to slow down and be patient to enjoy. :)

Re: Awesome!

Thanks, Brian. I thought this particular bunch to be simply extraordinary: Size, color, brilliance, all of it.

Climb safely!

Gorgeous photo! I love the color. Several years ago I managed to start this plant from seed and grow it in the garden. It only ever had three or four flowers on it when it bloomed. Later, it disappeared. I think voles got it. It was beautiful while it lasted.

Re: Wow!


Thank you for your kind words! Not exactly a green thumb, myself, I am impressed by your ability to start one of these from seed!
