Spent a week up North, County Durham. This is a little jewel, the Spring Gentian, at Cow Green Reservoir on a very cold blustery day.

Beautiful plant Linda; and a stunning blue.

Wow, brilliant Lyn. I have never seen one of those.

Hi Roy, you will only find these flowers at Cow Green Reservoir, no where else. We nearly lost these when the reservoir was built, the few that was found were ring-fenced and now they are spreading again. There are fences to keep the sheep out.
