It's hard to nail down a favourite bloom, there are just so many contenders. I've settled for a very sweet favourite of mine that I often see on my walks. This is Erigeron Glaucus, or more commonly known as the beach aster or seaside daisy. They are very easy to spot in these parts as they adore the seaside climate we are lucky to have in Weston-super-Mare (most of the time!). They're bright and colourful, and almost seem to soak up the sun and radiate it's warm glow. They enjoy a view too!
