Friday's Flower

Perennial Aster and Fritillary Butterfly
The asters are looking beautiful this year.  Although I've had these plants for three or four years, I've never seen so many blooms before now.  This has been another rain soaked week for us, but yesterday morning, thankfully, we looked out on a blue sky and glorious sunshine.   The bees and butterflies were the first to arrive in the garden, then a few birds, notably the juncos, and at mid morning a happy and most grateful  photographer/gardener came out to view the scene.
