White aster

Yesterday I held the opinion that I had seen about all of the wildflowers native to this part of the country and also that all of them had already bloomed for this year. So, this morning by the river I came across these brand new blossoms on a plant I had never seen before. Shows what I know.

Pretty little things, aren’t they!
