Another (official, or almost official) World Wild Aster Day on Flower a Day features this group of pretty blue wild asters. They almost seem to be swimming around here, with their delicate, slender petals floating above this dark background of leaves. They seem almost ethereal so light and airy are they. It’s hard to believe, as I trudge now through the snow where they grew, that it really wasn’t that long ago. But I look at where they were and know that under the snow, the promise of them is there and waiting, patiently, for the warmth of summer to awaken them. Hold onto that thought, my friends.

  1. Woohoo! Another WWAD! Can’t have too many. I know what you mean about floating, Ellie, but my first impression was this is the reaction you’d get from a group of kids who’ve just found out they’re going to the beach for the day. A wild ecstasy. Eager ‘yes, pleases’. Bright eyes, incredulous at the news. Jumping up and down. Waving of arms. Simple joy at being alive…and maybe, a slight case of bedhead (lol). Over all exuberance that only an aster can bring to the day. Spring will come in due course but the winter has its own beauty which I also love. The lesson I take from these wild asters is ‘ enjoy the moment’. Thank you, Ellie.

    1. Great vision that you have shared there, Janet! Thanks. Now I have that with you. I am so glad you are a fan of the WWAD, something else we have in common. Have a lovely day and enjoy the winter. As you say, it does bring its own beauty!

  2. Thanks Ellie. They are lovely and a very bright spot to awaken to a new day. Certainly something to look forward to this summer. Time is flying so it might not be too long before they’re here again.
