It is that time, of the year,
When all the Asters, start to appear.
A beautiful flower, so small and tight,
Their growth can become, quite a sight.
With purplish flowers, that pop into view,
Can be numerous or just a few.
It's nice, as the weather does harden,
As colors are welcomed, into the garden.
