Aster novae-angliae 'Herbstschnee'


Aster novae-angliae 'Herbstschnee' (Aster novae-angliae (New England aster))

This is the plant that I moved a few weeks ago - at completely the wrong time of year! I'm amazed that it has survived, :-))

I think it has an alternative name - hold on a moment.........................

How about Michaelmas Daisy 'Autumn Snow'...?? Better??

Much better, thanks.

The first name looks like a cough and a sneeze - perhaps it's got swine flu?

28 Aug, 2009

 

Aaaahhhh poor thing! No - it's only German!! lol.

Beautiful A tissue A tissue think I ve caught the flu oink oink

No laughing - there really IS a member down with swine flu - it does sound pretty awful! :-((

Yes it does sound horrible, not looking forward to the grandchildren going back to school, nor are their mothers.

I just read in the paper that the first vaccines won't be ready until October! A bit late, wouldn't you say? Just in time for the MPs when they come back from their holidays!! lol.

Anybody up for sending Alistair Darling, MP a letter telling him how to solve all our economic problems?

30 Aug, 2009

 

Dont all rush........

30 Aug, 2009

 

Would he take any notice? Would the letter even GET to him?? Anyway, he's probably in the Seychelles or somewhere far, far away....blue seas, warm sun, golden beaches, no worries - OH, to be an MP!!!

30 Aug, 2009

 

I'll put it on a little blog and you can tell me whether to send it to him.

30 Aug, 2009

 

Go on then! (I shouldn't be encouraging you - you might get flagged!)

30 Aug, 2009

 

Oh go on Wagger.....be a devil!!!

Lovely HUGE Aster, more like, Sbg! It's very tall - I should say 'they' because I have two clumps... lol. I have to support these.

4 Sep, 2009

 

mmm i have some tall ones too. one variety 'Calliope ' is over 5ft and i forgot to stake one clump, its all over now.

4 Sep, 2009

 

With the wind we're having every day at the moment - I'm really glad I DID remember to put those circular supports round the clumps!
