Happy Autumn! Sadly, the image above is from two years ago, and there were no fringed gentian to be found this year. I didn't see any at Cornell's land, either, so something in the winter weather two years ago seems to have killed off the gentian, probably a warm spell followed by record cold. We sold the house where this picture was taken, but I did save some seed from the last year things bloomed. We'll see if the seed is still good.
Today, we close on the parcel of land at the farm!
