The perennial borders of Killesberg Park turn into a sea of Aster flowers in autumn. Even though many varieties had already reached their flowering peak in mid-October, I was fascinated to see how the different varieties continued to form a coherent overall picture.

The late afternoon light seemed to intensify the variety of blue and purple hues and as I walked along the small path through the borders, I felt like I was taking a bath in colour.
