Some more flowers

The asters have started to flower with this light blue one and a small red one in the stone feature, both of which I’ve acquired within the past year.

 

 

I’m particularly pleased with the latter as I lost the first one I’d been given.

Following these will be the big clump of blue ones under the cornus/dogwood and lastly my favourite Twinkling Stars, which has lots of small white flowers.

I’ve started collecting seeds from the pot marigolds, cosmos and sunflowers to sort, check and then save for next year.

It’s another sign that it’s all starting to wind down as we head into autumn, although most of these should keep flowering for a couple of more months.

Take care, and have a good week!

  1. Lovely asters.(I call them Michaelmas daisies, have always presumed they are the same thing)?? Mine are just little buds at the moment but l’m sure they will be blooming soon.
    Funny time of the year in the garden, sad in some ways but good to start the clearing up progress. Have a good week. Andy xx

  2. Yes, definitely feeling a bit autumnal now, with damp mornings and falling leaves. Love the asters, something I am going to try one day as they are great for bees late in the season. CJ xx
