 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  Today's image is a little different due to the fact that it was taken past bloom.  These are Asters, most likely Heath Asters which are the most common in our area, after they have bloomed and have dried out.  They are shorter than normal Asters, most likely because they grew late due to the field being worked by farmers.  Farmers would prefer not to have it in their fields as it lowers the quality of their hay.  I think they are very photogenic flowers whether in bloom or past where they develop these puffballs to spread their seeds.


  1. Flowers deserve to be photographed at various stages, not just at their pristine blossom

    1. I agree. Many have lots of character afterwards too.
