Aster/ Today's Flowers

New England aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae)

This aster is a common wildflower in fields and along roadsides across Ontario. New England asters are so attractive they are often sold at nurseries.

 As you can see the bumblebees like them too!

Love the lovely delicate flowers, whether they are common blooms or rarities matters not because they are beautiful. The photos of the bee are fantastic!

These fall asters are so pretty. boy oh boy that bee is just gobbling up the flower---you bet your aster. For some stupid reason I like saying that. I guess because I can. LOL MB

This is a marvelous post. I love when these delicate flowers go from white to this phosphorescent blue. Haunting and lovely.

The colour of the asters is very pretty. Even if they are common, they are very attractive.

I LOVE Asters! I used to think they were just small daisies!

Arija said...

When I was little, living in europe, asters were always my birthday flowers. For that reason alone I have always loved them and your captures are so beautiful.

Jacob said...

I just thought of something...I'm a songwriter (well, I used to be) and I always liked the song, "Yesterday."

So, how about if I write a song to go along with this post about a young woman holding a bouquet of Asters from a lover who left her the day before; I'll call it "Asterday."

No? Ah, shucks.
