These asters are a new fave of mine! Don't you love the rich red color? I have some lavender ones, and these nice blue ones, too.
Another rose, I ended up with three 'Angel Face' plants somehow.
Hard not to like the color and ruffled edges, though.
the last of the George Davidson crocosima (yellow!),
a few remaining mock orange blooms,
and a scraggly maroon - colored mum that was too sad to post.
These fall anemones are always a welcome sight, this time of the year.
Happy Bloom Day!
