Garden -- I was wrong

September wild white asters aren't biennial.
They're annual or perennial.
Mine are blooming right now. 
So is the basil I planted this year; different plants have been blooming for months now,
spinning off new branches which pop their little white flowers.
I get a whiff of them once in a while when the wind blows just the right way.
As the spikes turn brown, I'm running a lightly closed hand over them, hoping the seeds fall into the planter.
Maybe I'll have a couple of dozen plants next year if I'm lucky.
MMMMM pesto.
