Thursday 10 October 2013, Continued. Just Gentians

Since the previous post was getting long with bottle gentian pictures and since I really wanted to show the eye-feast in some detail, here is a post dedicated to them.

How comforting to have the image of these blue flowers among the dying leaves to carry one through the approaching winter!

About Velo du Jour

I am a 61 year old mom/wife, former biologist, and presently certified Iyengar yoga teacher, and I love, besides biking (and other things), nature, swimming, drawing, photography, yarn, exploring adoption themes, and putting people at ease. In April 2012, I participated in "30 Days of Biking "http://30daysofbiking.com/ on Twitter, sponsored by a group of "joyful cyclists" in Minneapolis during the month of April. I loved tweeting about each day's ride so much I didn't want to stop! "Velo du Jour" is a continuation of recording and sharing my rides post-30 Days of Biking.
