The asters are still blooming, but they are not as perky as they were a few weeks ago. About 6 weeks ago, the asters started to bloom...and now the summer is just about over. The asters know!

I blog at cruztalking.blogspot.com--just everyday pictures and prose about what's going on in my corner of the world. Since I travel a lot, that corner changes with the wind.

Good afternoon Cruz,
Asters are autumn flowers that keep a long time. The color I like. The close-up, it might be a bit clearer and sharper. Have a nice day and all the best. Sincerely Christel

They seem to have that late-summer wilt; even so their colors are wonderful.
