Here’s a view of the back of the garden. The aromatic asters (Aster oblongifolius) in the foreground are providing the last flowers of the season.
They form a low hedge and I enjoy the textured foliage through the summer. I especially enjoy when they bloom in September and October.
At close range the blossoms are dainty and delicate.
However, the plants have been hardy. We’ve had very little rain for three months and have already had frost. Nevertheless, the plants continue to bloom and add a nice touch of color.
