Look at that color! I had planted this asters plant in the Spring and then forgot all about it. In fact, it is lucky to be alive! For a long time I thought it was a weed but never got around to weeding my garden cause I am a lazy slug. Then I left town and returned to find it blooming.
I have a colorway of thread and fabric called Asters inspired by the plant. Or maybe I should say, inspired by my memory of asters from a different garden. In any case, Asters is one of my favorite colorways that I dye, the colors of Autumn.
