Asters

I am a late-comer to the Aster Party.

I don't think I have ever bought them
before this year.
Such bright warm colours...
such fresh soft leaves...

I can't imagine why
I didn't know about them before

I have some seedlings planted but will have to wait some time for the flowers.

Mine seem to have disappeared from the garden over the course of the year. Bah.

Beautiful photos Alice, I love the shadow. I think those Asters you have are particualarly blowsy, I don't remember them being so full of petals?
But the colours of them, lovely lovely, I'm sure you could find a fantastic name for that shade of Aster Pink?

I love asters, I have some almost flourescent ones in the garden. Funny, I don't like bright colours anywhere else.

I just planted three Asters in my garden...they're purple and gorgeous. Germans love Asters. They're everywhere.

Dear Mr M...You would need to spend a LOT of money on asters to make enough for a suitable presentation bunch. Stick with what you know. Be on the safe side.

I must look into asters for our plot. I've never bought or grown them, but those are just gorgeous. K x

I saw wild ones in New England this fall. Very pretty, even late in the season.
