Super posting, I particularly liked the rudely healthy and extravagantly fruited Sorbus reducta. The flower of Gentiana acaulis 'Coelistina' is much darker blue than mine. My Autumn gentians, like yours, are very late and poorly flowered this year, and I have lots of non-flowerjng pots of crocus too, which is interesting given our very different climates, but perhaps this summer was more similar than usual in Northumberland and N. Wales.
So pleased to read the second part of your entry and learn the op was successful to date. Autumn in the SW is late and very dry, we are still harvesting apples, pears and tomatoes by the bucketful and watering the pots and garden. No autumn colour so far but lots of Crocus and Colchicum, however the autumn gentians are not flowering well this year. All the best for a speedy return to health and more from your garden.
