Asters and Butterflies

Most of my asters get far too tall, and flop over….

… does that happen to yours too?

Of course, if I staked them early enough, before the ground gets too hard and dry, I suppose I could avoid it!

Still, the butterflies don’t seem to mind…

By the way, despite some cold nights I spotted the (possibly) last hummingbird hawk-moth of the year on October 13th!
