Image #271 – Wood Asters with raindrops

Image #271


Asters are so plentiful and so sturdy.  Little blasts of color as the days start to change from summer to fall.  The name Aster comes from the Ancient Greek word ἀστήρ (astér), meaning “star”, referring to the shape of the flower head.  These wood asters are a gift from friends. We planted them along the side of the house last October and I feared they would not survive the winter but they have returned and are quite robust.  We are barreling toward the autumnal equinox and change is already in the air. ❧
