They are everywhere by the sides of our roads. They are so pretty. They are the "Wild Asters!"
At this time of year, all that seem to bloom are the asters and some goldenrod.
All summer long starting in late spring and continuing until the snow flies, we in Northern New England are blessed with wild flowers. They grow by the roadsides and sometimes in the garden. I make conscious decisions every year about which ones (in my perennial bed) I'll allow to stay, and which I'll tear out. I almost ALWAYS leave the wild asters and some goldenrod. They just make the garden "fit" better into that place we know as our garden.
What are some of YOUR favorite and hardy wild flowers that you allow in your garden? Or ones that you particularly admire while walking or driving?
