Ripping up pavement

Over the weekend a crew was chewing up the parking lot by Donaldsons. By the time you read this, there may be a new surface to the lot.
Have you noticed all the small white asters that are blooming this time of the year? They are everywhere. I took the picture below near Donaldsons. If left undisturbed, the plant will have hundreds of little flowers on it. However, if they are occasionally mowed, as this one was, they still will produce some flowers. Until a couple of years ago,  I had never noticed these flowers, but then they started growing around my house, and I noticed they are everywhere.
The sunflowers are mostly done blooming, and the asters will be among the last native flowers to bloom. Enjoy them.
