Wildflower Wednesday

I have finally gotten most of the small field filled in with willowleaf aster 'Miss Bessie'. It's the only thing that I tried that has thrived up there and it's great for bees, butterflies and other pollinators, especially at a time when not much else is blooming in profusion.

Looking across the field to the neighbor's horse pasture. The drive turns left to go down to the house.
We've taken to parking the cars up top because of a cardinal that's been attacking the mirrors.

I think some years 'Miss Bessie' has a lovely grayish cast and other years it's more purple. This is a purple year.

The field sounds like a giant hive. So many bees!

Today I am joining Gail at clay and limestone for Wildflower Wednesday.
