Twinkling Stars is the name that I gave to the aster pringlei Monte Cassino that I had on the plot until mid-last year. Sadly I then found that the roots had rotted in soggy ground and it was dead. I was very grateful to plot neighbour George who gave me another one which I planted in different area which is okay all year.
I’ve been keeping watch as it’s grown and it’s now been flowering the past couple of weeks with masses of thumb-nail sized white flowers which have a yellow centre. I’m really pleased that I have this pleasing perennial on the plot again.
At the top of the picture you can see the hydrangea which is another pleasing perennial that I’ve enjoyed during the summer and autumn, providing several flower heads and leaves that are now turning red.
Have a good week!
