These photos were taken in my garden on August 16th and 20th last year, but they were not taken with my trusty Sigma 105mm macro lens. As always, the lens that I did use will be specified at the end of the post.
This is a blossom from a New England aster. I got four mail order plants last year and all four did good. Too good! I didn’t realize what size the plants would be (I need to start reading about plants I’ve never grwon before I order them and plant them), and they turned out to be more of a bush than a simple flower plant. They took up way too much space in my little garden so this past spring I transplanted one to a spot outside of the garden. I will take the other three out of the garden next spring. That still gives me about eight months to figure out where I can put them.

Sadly, it’s the end ofthe line for this Shasta daisy.

New England aster getting ready to bloom. The plant/bush has numerous woody branches that are densely covered with grouping like this one.
And this is what you get when the buds above go into bloom.
Thank you for stopping by.
