09.25.07 FEAST DAY FLOWER
Now is the time I look for these wild purple flowers. When walking in England in the fall many years ago I first noticed a similar flower coming in to bloom in early autumn. It had been named a Michaelmas daisy because it blooms at the time of the ancient Christian feast day of St. Michael (September 29), the warrior archangel who has come to protect us in the coming months of darkness. I wonder if this fall flower is related?
