Autumn Joy

Purple Aster, the last of the perennial wildflowers in bloom.
Gracing the countryside with their heavenly colors, a treat for birds and bees alike.
A true Autumn Joy!

"I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one."
~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

Thank you for sharing your lovely fall asters with us. We have no flowers or color left this far north and it is nice to know someone still has flowers on display in their gardens. Enjoy!
Hope you are up and about again.

What a beautiful aster and apt words from Edna St.Vincent Millay. Autumn joy, indeed!

Yesterday I did some sewing with your lovely music to keep me company. Thanks for brightening my day!

Hope your knee is feeling better.

Hi Jo, There won't be too many pretty flowers left soon... Your Purple Aster is just so pretty--especially this time of year.

Hope you are staying warm today... "Baby, It's Cold Outside"...

How's the knee?
