I love this photo.
Back in September the bumble bees were just loving the Asters, the Sedum blooms, and my raspberries. I had a lot of great opportunities to capture the large flying bumbling insects as they visited my flowers.
This photo is one of a happy bumble bee visiting my New York Asters.
New York Asters are perennial asters. The plant grows to about three feet tall and at least two feet in diam. and from mid August into early September hundreds and hundreds of buds begin to form. When they do bloom the plant is covered in lovely delicate looking pale mauve flowers. I only wish they were scented.
