Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day – October 2010
Thankfully we’ve still had Butterflies, however the weather has turned distinctly cooler – even with the sun out. I don’t think the Comma, Red Admiral or Small Tortoiseshell will visit for much longer.
I finally checked the labels on my mystery Aster… Perhaps I ought to have done it a little sooner…
She is ‘Aster Lateriflorus ‘Lady in Black’’. And a quick search on the net brings up some interesting images… At least I’ve learnt my lesson for this year and hopefully we rectify the issue for next year 🙂
I’m making this post as quick as possible because I’ve had or am still suffering from a shocking cold. Must be making up for the fact I avoided any illness at all last Autumn/Winter/Spring and giving me a doubly horrible dose. If it weren’t for the fact my nose and eyes were streaming and I had no rash I would’ve assumed I had Meningitis. Light hurt me, I could barely open my eyes, my whole body hurt, stiff neck, legs ached, nausea and I’ve had a headache for the past 3days now (the beginning of this post was actually written before I got ill in preparation for Bloom day)
This Anemone looks a little worse for wear
