The end crowns the work - may the last be the best! The glorious time of Gentians is upon us - another growing season putting on its final show. The beauty of Gentians is enhanced by the lovely places they inhabit, the splendor of the autum sky, and the magic of falling leaves, among many other good things. All photos from Lake County, Indiana, 9-27-09.
