Idyll # 509 October skies
Chilly out there this morning - the shift into October felt very obvious during walkies at 8:00 a.m. this morning! (Leather jacket and gloves for me - although Randy was still in shorts and sandals!)
I noticed this morning that I seem to have a patch of unusually dark (red-purple) asters in the little bed behind the driveway border. The picture below isn't very good but you can see that they're not the lighter purple-blue of most of the asters I have. I'm going to try to remember to mark the base of them so I can tell which are which next spring.
The asters at the end of the driveway are huge billows this year. The combination of the purple and the intense magenta-pink always drives me crazy but Randy likes it and doesn't want me to change it!
