Saturday Photo: Stars on Earth--Asters
They're part of my wild, Darwinian garden in which I strive to have something low-maintenance in bloom from the time the snow melts until a good freeze levels things. For the week or two when the asters overlap with the best of the golden rod, the effect is quite wonderful, I think.
We'd gone through a long, hot dry spell after a wet spring and summer, and the flowers were thriving with a little watering from my soaker hoses. But the temperature dropped Thursday night, and thunder storm blew in for a few hours. A few of the clumps of asters suffered from the hard rain so the effect isn't quite what it was. But the change in the weather is a good one, and long overdue....
