My favorite glass bead.

This lampwork glass bead was made by melting several colors in layers and letting it cool slightly before adding more. It is done slowly to prevent each layer from melting into each other.

PURPLE is a pretty color for the fall garden.

Asters attract butterflies

Aster thrives in areas with cool, moist summers. It produces blue, white, or pink flowers in the late summer or fall. Plant height ranges from 8 inches to 8 feet, depending on variety. Tall varieties make good back-of-the-border plants and are also attractive planted in naturalized meadows. Aster is susceptible to powdery mildew and rust diseases, so choose disease-resistant varieties.
