  2. Love seeing blue and yellow flowers together. There’s something so fresh and cheering about them.

  3. Maria says:

    How calming and beautiful. What’s the weather like now?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Maria. It’s still summery, upper 70s, low 80s. We’re still in drought, despite a few inches of rain last week. A few showers today and Tues., but we have a long way to go to catch up, alas.

  4. Lovely photo. I found myself yesterday standing at the faucet ‘waiting’ to use it. What was I waiting for? There was a hummingbird at the feeder, and I didn’t want to disturb it. I did have a ‘quiet’ hearty laugh though while I stood there. Lots of gardening friend out there right now.

    Another autumn and gold combination that betokens fall — at least, for me. It’s a lovely sight.

  6. Wow, asters already. We’re in the lingering throes of summer—zinnias and hosta blooms.

  7. Alice says:

    A beautiful flower and important meal for her…and then she can go to the goldenrod.

    So skillfully composed and captured, somewhat your flower arrangements. Happy Sunday!

  9. So autumnal, Eliza, with the goldenrod in the background!

  10. Our New England Aster do draw the pollinators in. It’s aster season and so many species are in their glory right now. Happy Aster Sunday, Eliza!

    Love the color of the aster!

  12. Tina says:

    Oh, look at that pretty aster! Mine won’t bloom until October-ish, but I look forward to that same purple (though probably a different species of aster) and the accompanying bees and butterflies too!

  13. Kris P says:

    Lovely! I admit to feeling a little sorry that I pulled out my rambunctious aster last year. While it’s still attempting periodic sneaky comebacks, I don’t expect it’s going to get away with flowering.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Kris. Well that one was a bit over the top. Most of our asters here are clumping, so not a big problem space wise. My favorite (S. cordifolia) is a bit rampant, but easy enough to control annually in spring.

  14. Cathy says:

    Such a beautiful photo Eliza. 😃

  15. Carry on, little pollinator! We can’t have too many pretty purple asters!

  16. Asters mean fall is at hand. Adiós, summer.

  17. Debbie says:

    Aster is my birth month flower (September), so your photo made me smile — thanks, Eliza!

  18. Robin says:

    This is so lovely. 🙂

  19. Mine have yet to open 😦

  20. Jane Lurie says:

    Such pretty flowers, Eliza. And the yellow background complements the purple flowers so well. And the bee, of course! 💜💛🐝

  21. Alex says:

    Lovely colors

  22. Such a beautiful capture, Eliza, I love the softness of colors!

  23. naturebackin says:

    Lovely light and colours Eliza. I am sorry to read about your drought and hope you do get some more rain. Every bit counts for something I suppose.

  24. Pretty shot! The purple and yellow, and green too, work so well together!
