I love asters because they seem so easy to grow and maintain, they just pop up in every public place. And what’s not to like about them? They’re not too big, not to small, and very colorful. To me, a bed of asters is always shouting, we’re happy today and you should be too!
Asters come in a variety of colors but my favorite is purple. Here’s a dark purple aster flower, followed by a light purple aster. Both flowers show leftover raindrops on their petals from the morning’s watering, a lovely touch left for me to capture on camera.
Lovely is your photos.
Greetings, RW & SK
Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to comment today.
Radiant purples beautifully touched with droplets.
Thank you very much!
I can see why your favourite aster is purple. Beautiful!
They sure are! I can’t wait for next spring so I can find a nice big patch of them to photograph.
These are gorgeous! I think they might rank among my favorites of yours. 🙂
Thank you, I’m glad you like them. I was thinking they might look good on coasters. 🙂
Haha, I was thinking the same thing, but I didn’t want to sound pushy. 🙂
You wouldn’t, you’d just give me ideas for new products!
Calling by from Floral Friday Foto, what a lovely contribution.
Thanks for stopping by, and thank you for your kind words.
Those colors are breathtaking.
Thank you very much!
Gorgeous flowers, Milka.I love the colours. 🙂
Thank you! Purple is by far my favorite color to spot in nature.
Wonderful! I love the small drops on the petals.
Thank you very much! I’m putting together my last of 5 calendars for 2014 and one of these photos is going in there for sure.

that dark purple aster is strikingly beautiful. This must be a large garden aster? Where I live, we have wild purple asters that are much tinier but make up for their individual small size by their large numbers – often huge bunches of them coloring a field.
It’s probably 2 inches in diameter, so yes, it’s pretty big. They usually come in large patches of them but these few are remnants for this year’s blooms. I can’t wait till next spring when they start popping out again!
Lovely asters Milka! Did you spray them? The dew drops are wonderful!
Well, I didn’t but the sprinkler sprayed them for me!
