Good morning GTers! My favourite #blue #aster has finally come into flower! It's very late this year and I was beginning to wonder if it had got lost! Enjoy your day everyone! 😀 #michaelmasdaisy #daisy

Morning Ian. I love the pale blue Asters. One of my all time favourites is Mönch, which is very similar to the one you've (beautifully) captured above. Will nip to your blog next... 😊
