Aster amellus or Michaelmas Daisy
Not that anyone around here knows it as that, of course.
Here’s it’s just the Herbstaster – Autumn aster. Fairly logical, given that the Equinox was exactly a week ago.
But its original name is stems from the fact that it blossoms on/around St Michael’s day – 29 September.
As in: today
And talking of St Michael the Archangel.
I’ve never much liked John Travolta but “I’m not that kind of angel” from “Michael” gets me every time…
