  1. Thank you, I have always loved the mountain gentians in all their forms but since I cannot even approach 2,000m without oxygen , I am happy to see it on your blog.

  2. You have shown a series of benches with flowers in the same photo, so I guess you decided to show flowers today because you showed a bench yesterday.

    1. These here (Gentiana acaulis) are growing in mountainous regions, such as the Alps, Cevennes and Pyrenees, at heights of 800–3,000 meters (2,625–9,843 ft).
      However, here in South Tyrol you rarely find them under 1,500 meters.

  7. Let's see, 2000 meters would be roughly 6000 feet. That's not bad unless you're on a mountain that goes straight up! :) Lovely flower...I'm picturing whole fields of them.

  8. I don't know gentians, but I do like the rich cobalt blue color.
