Another Aster...

Here's another aster photo I took last week. Right now they're in their peak bloom, some roadsides are just covered in the purples and pinks of these biennual flowers. The last time there was a nice display like this was back in '06; now it won't be until 2010 till we see the purple roadsides again in this area.

fabulous colors. You may have to wait until 2010 again but you can put a few of these pictures along the roadside and no one would no these were not real flowers.
