Pink Asters

Today’s post includes the pink asters I’ve been seeing. Not nearly as many of them as the purple flowers, but the pinks have their own beauty. At one time, I thought this might be another species, but the more I see them, the more convinced I am that these are the same as the purple asters, but just a slight color variation. Here are a few of the pink-toned asters I captured in one of my wildflower areas:
