Asters in my garden. Say goodbye to summer.

Your photos are so clear and beautiful. What kind of camera do you have? I’m shopping for a new one. : )

What’s the difference between an aster and a purple cone flower? Regarless – that photo is sure purty!

Lovely. It’s so hard to face October.

Pretty! I can’t believe summer is over…
September 29, 2006 at 8:23 am
I’m so ready to say goodbye to summer and bring on the fall!

Asters are just one of the reasons Fall is my favorite season. Lovely pic.

Very pretty flowers. It will be back in the 80s here on Monday.

Hello to fall!
September 29, 2006 at 10:23 am
sweet flowers. Is summer over for you? It’s still 80 + here, and we’re hoping for rain soon.

Yeah, but think of all the beautiful Eye Candy Friday pics you’ll have of fall leaves!

Gorgeous. I’m so not ready for winter (and we kind of skip right over fall and go straight to winter).

Very pretty colors. Good bye, summer, and HELLO, AUTUMN!

I do love asters, maybe because they are amongst the last hangers-on… fall is definitely in MY air. Have a great weekend.

I love the asters, in all their weedy-looking mess. This time of year mine are smothered in Monarch butterflies, too. I just love ’em….

OK, you too get my favorite dose of Teasdale:
In the spring I asked the daisies
If his words were true,
And the clever little daisies
Not the fields are brown and barren,
Bitter autumn blows,
And of all the stupid asters,
Not one knows.

yes, my post as well today…
they are still lovely.

No no no no no. I am in denial, asters be darned.

I love fall in the garden. The colors are so vibrant. Your asters are lovely.

And all the stupid asters. Not one knows. heh I love poetry. I love the cultural expansion and exposure that we get through blogging and reading other comments. 🙂
I never knew what an aster looked like – sounds like it’s one of those easy-to-grow and doesn’t-want-to-die kinda flowers that everyone should have! Thanks for the beautiful photo Carole. 🙂

I just read your 100 Things list & what a good read! Thanks for sharing. We have quite a few things in common (besides names) you having the fancy spelling – the leftie and Virgo thing ahhh. You made the right decision not to live in FL, it’s getting to be for the birds as it were. I know of a couple of knitting librarians with tatoos though! 😉

What a beautiful photo! I’m sad to see summer go as well, but with the amazing weather we’ve been having lately, it’s way easier to face fall!

Bye bye summer! The asters sweeten the deal.
