Gentians

Gentians 

Is not the secret intent

of this discreet Earth to draw lovers on,

so that each and every thing is delight within their feeling?

- The Ninth Elegy, Duino Elegies, Rilke

However, you know better than I that gentian's "lovers" are difficult to grown outside their wild habitat, Dave!

This is a flower I have never seen. I have memories of having my throat painted with gentain violet and I do believe it comes from these exotic blooms. Beautiful and rare for me. I love the quote.
