Blue gorgeousness

Pine Barren gentian, originally uploaded by Vilseskogen.
Some flowers just get to you, right in the heart. Some flowers have colors so rich that you can't take their eyes from them. Some flowers seem to be made just for admiration, just to be gorgeous. Some flowers are just out of this world. Some flowers just make me happy.

Like this one, Pine Barren gentian (Gentiana autumnalis), seen today flowering in a meadow of already dead grass in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, oblivious to frost and drought and other things that kill off plants. There are many more photos of these incredible plants here.
