Leaves falling, geese honking overhead, frost in the air, deer hunting season around the corner; time for one last colorful meadow story before moving on and embracing autumn.
The aster bloom, a wonderful palette of white, blue, lavender and purple, follows the goldenrod bloom, with just enough overlap to create a memorable finale to the wildflower season…..
The September bloom, brilliant when the sun is just right, frames idle nest boxes,
Fuels late season butterflies,
Hides a fawn,
And its alert mother as well!
