A Week of Fall Flowers 3

Ah, the Aster (in this case, the annual sort).  I believe these are 'Powder Puff', though I have grown the spidery sort as well.  Again, I didn't actually plant these this year; they're bonus self-seeded ones from the year before.  I shall certainly have to plant more next season, as I enjoy them much more than the Cosmos I tried this year.  They tend to bloom for me anywhere from August on through October, and I love the cheerful pops of colour they add to my garden.  Like the other flowers I've been featuring, they're frost-tolerant.
