The Monarch and bee are both attracted to the pretty purple aster.
from my slow Sunday bike ride.
Asters are among my favorite flowers. They come in many colors but I think the purples are the prettiest.
I think I meant to focus on the yellow flowers but then the wind blew.
I know it is still summer because the thistle is still blooming. In the fall it turns brown and sticks to my sweaters.
I find these colors soothing. Another waterlily picture taken at Como Park.
