Part of my cottage garden
White plus white combination (Daisy and Verbascum)
Do I smell some romance here?
Two monardas. One is loved by bees, another is ignored by them.

August is a Fuchsia month ( next to Hebe Quicksilver)
Fuchsia and Japanese maple, Euphorbia and Melianthus major
Liatris is a star of the front bed this time a year
But what is this? Any ideas? A volunteer stranger. Reminds some type of aster:
I participate in Cottage Flora Thursday
