lol, I didn't even know it was up. I LOVE autumn asters, and it's a good thing as they seem to be taking over! I had a good time taking the pictures for this, I had Stan drag me all over the 'neighborhood' seeking out the shyer varieties that like to hide on back roads and down right of ways. My bright blue ones are putting on the best show this year.
beautiful shot Kathleen,I might have to see to it that some purlpe asters are planted in the ditches around here !!! Ive got white and lavendar on the woods edge.I will have to take a few fall photos today,going fast,id better get er done !!!!!
I really do miss the white/purple/blue wild asters in the fields, backdropped by the intense yellow/orange/red maple trees each autumn.
I used to live in Lackawanna, NY & would ride my bike through the southtowns. Beautiful sight !!!
We are only about 90 miles southwest of Buffalo. Things are a little slow this year because of the drought, but recent rain seems to be signaling that fall is here and the trees are starting to change. The asters and golden rod were early to bloom, but have held on to it longer than usual.
