Apparent blooms…


These Aster clusters appear to be in full bloom in our eighteen inches of fresh snow. The deceptive flowers are actually opened seed heads, which are just as showy as their preceding purple blossoms.

Stay safe and warm Mid-Westerners…and Easterners as deep below zero high temperatures are expected tomorrow.

  1. What a beautiful surprise! You’ve had a lot more snow than we’ve had in central Wisconsin. Our prairie asters bloomed far too late this season and quickly closed it’s sere blooms tightly as if foretelling the coming severity of the coming winter. Sweetie, it’s so cold outside.
