Herbology: Michaelmas Daisies & Farewell to Summer

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

My garden is full Michaelmas daisies, as it often is at the Autumn Equinox. I love their purple and yellow flowers, and so do the bees, so I’ve let them grow tall. Well, actually, I’ve not done much gardening this summer, so most of my plants are growing tall, but at least it *is* good for the bees and other insects.

Michaelmas daisies are among the last flowers to bloom each summer. They are named for St Michael’s Day, on 29 September, and I’ve already blogged about folklore associated with that. Sandra Lawrence, in Witch’s Garden, adds that Michaelmas daisies are flowers of farewell – and the Autumn Equinox can be a time to say a farewell to summer and marking the end of the harvest, while welcoming the autumn season.
