#wildflowerwednesday  - Fringed-Gentian
Visited Bluff Spring Fen (northern Illinois) recently and found many Gentianopsis sp. in bloom.

Natural History Notes: "Gentians" bloom late summer, early fall when most everything else is brown. This particular location is a designated Illinois Nature Preserve with many "rare" plants...plant species list of 500+! I did not get good photos of the plant leaves to drill down to whether this was a Greater or Lesser Fringed-Gentian. No matter the flowers were large and beautiful. Hope you enjoy :-)

I followed up on Nina's "want to read" list from 5 weeks ago. I finished reading The Rise and Fall of Dinosaurs A New History of a Lost World and thought I would give you folks a review. Enjoy and keep committing ;-)

Thanks so much Google and you Plussers for the opportunity to post photos of the wildlife I'm so passionate about. The coming year will be bringing change for this platform at a minimum. So, Be a light unto yourself as the Buddha has said...somewhat like the photos posted here. Best wishes to you all ;-)
