Aster ericoides Flowering 3568

At least once before I’ve asked what autumn would be without asters, and now I’m asking again. I believe what you’re seeing here is white heath aster, Symphyotrichum ericoides. The date was October 22nd and the location was McCallen Pass at E. Parmer Ln. on the prairie in northeast Austin.
