Veronica cuneifolia D. Don subsp. cuneifolia

Hello friends.
A little break to share butterflies. This time my guest is a very special flower on my page. Its name is "Veronica". A very beautiful name. Thus its name used as female name in European languages. In Turkish, we named it as "Mine" (you should read like mee'ne) and we use it as a female name, too.

I said that it is very special. Yes, because it grows up only in a few places in Turkey on the World. You can find it only in Bursa - Uludag, Antalya and Mugla - Taurus Mountain 1800 - 2300 meter elevation from sea level. I'm lucky that am living in Bursa very near to Uludag (Only 35 km far from me, but I have to climb on foot, so high hills.

Physical Characteristics: It has 1-7 cm talled, ramified, leaning and creeping body. Leaves are half-cylindrical or eliptical, rarely lanceolate or crenate. Rasems are 1 or 3 pieces and have 5-25 flowers. Bracteas rhombical or lanceolat. Calix has 4-5 lobes. Corolla blue or purple. Diameter of corolla is 5 - 15 mm. Capsules are half cylindrical and their diameter is 3-4 mm.

Flowering Time: April - August
Habitat: 1800-2300 meters altitude, alpin meadows, rocky stony slopes.

Endemic to Turkey. Epecially Uludag and Toros Daglari(Taurus Mountain.)

I decided to dedicate this photo of mine which has a special meaning for me to our dear friend, my dear brother great Turkish Nature Photographer Bayram GÖÇMEN. I hope he likes this as I liked as. I took it last year on Uludag, about 2250 meter altitude from sealevel, after going 4 hour on a steep on foot. It was a very trying but very funny trip.

Greetings.

Hello Fevzi,
Very beautiful shot of this rare Veronica species of the Uludag, with a beautiful deep blue (my favourite color!). Good idea to present it in its environnement, with rocks and quarz on the right. Nice dedication to our friend Bayram. I'm sure he will like it!
Iyi geceler,
Catherine

Selamlar fevzi bey,
bayram hocam için mükemmel bir hediye olmuş
Tür ve fotoğraf harika.
Elinize sağlık iyi geceler.

Ohhh... ohhh aman da aman Fevzi kardeşim beni bu güzeller güzeli Veronika ile nasıl memnun ettim anlatamam:-)
Adı gibi kendi de güzel, nadir bulunan bu endemik güzellikle beni onurlandırdın emin ol. Toroslarda o kadar çok arazi çalışması yapmış olmama rağmen bu güzele rastlamamanın burukluğunu sanırım hissedebiliyorsun:)
Bugüne kadar aldığım en güzel hediyelerden diyebilirim. Saat şu an sabahın 4'ünü 10 geçiyor... Havada gök gürültüsü ve yağmur... bir taraftanda bu güzele bakmak ayrı bir keyif veriyor insana. Çok ama çok teşekkürler dostum. Günümü gün ettin! Allah hepimize birer Veronica verir inşallahhhhh...:)
Çok ama çok beğendim. Ellerin dert görmesin!
Işığın bol günün keyifli olsun...
Selam ve sevgilerimle!

This shade of blue I find the most beautiful for any flower, Fevzi. In the case of these earth-hugging tiny ones, it is a rich feast for the senses.
It is the overall impression of this cluster of them that makes a strong appeal to me.
Well done and TFS.
Ram

Fevzi bey çok güzel. Bayıldım. Bayram hoca için de harika bir hediye. Yakışır hocama. Elinize sağlık.

Hello fevzi,
A fine capture of this beautiful species of veronica, the intense blue of the flowers reminding me of gentians. The POV and composition against the quartz stoney Bg is great and taken with excellent sharpness and colours.
Thanks and best regards,
