It's going to be a brutal, brutal week at work so my mind is on the beauty around us 😔😌 @purple @purpleloversmagazine
Walter’s Aster (Symphyotrichum walteri) in Weymouth Woods looking all elegant and regal. Found in savannas, sandhills, and pine flatwoods from Eastern NC to Florida.
This random rose garden grows next to a tucked-away parking lot on campus. Despite its neglect, the roses bloom each year. In 11 years, I’ve never seen anyone care for the roses but they keep going.
