I just love the colour of this aster right in the middle of the garden.

A splash of colour in the middle of the garden

We have a smaller version in the chicken’s strip which I photographed a while back but this one was just in bud at the time. It is quite nice sometimes that things peak at different times and today I noticed that almost all of the buds had opened on this aster.

It’s an uplifting splash of colour at the end of the gardening year.

    They are very pretty, we have a lovely show of them as well,
    I thought they are Michaelmas daisys. Bob has just said he thinks, they are of the Aster family.

    • I thought they were too but I googled them and found that they are asters. Then I remembered we had michaelmas daisys in our last garden. They flower at the same time of year and have a similar flower (a lighter shade and also in white) but they are a much taller plant. We always ended up putting in a stake as they would blow over. These are quite compact and low to the ground. Either way both plants give a lovely splash of colour at the end of the year.

    Bob is right. they, are called Aster or Michaelmas daisy, I have just Googled it.

  3. I have just googled again and I think they are called by both names but there are lots of different varieties with different heights and different coloured blooms.
