If only so many flowers were not of the Aster family (and so cheering) I would not be having quite so many World Wild Aster Days as I do. I wanted sun for you today. So here it is! I know the name of this plant is a rather ugly sounding one, so I am proposing that we change it to Sun Thistle. This is an edible plant (though I understand a little bitter) and was, once again, photographed along the edge of the road opposite my house. How can you help but like this bright, unassuming little flower that is everywhere in ditches and roadsides, brightening our walks and drives, as well as today’s post! I hope the Monday sun that it brings you cheers if only for a moment, as you go about your day. This is my wish as I get it ready to send out to you. XO
