|the plant formerly known as Aster laevis 'Bluebird'|
The poor bumblebees were desperately clinging to it during yesterday's wicked wind.
We now interrupt this post for a short video of said wind.
This wasn't the worst of it, but I refused to stand out there while it was really wild. The other "tombstones" got blown down, and that last one ended up by the side of the driveway by evening.
We now return to our regularly scheduled post.
The pollinators prefer this ex-aster to all others, practically pushing each other out of the way.
