September's Flower

"Now violet and rose have had their day,
I'll pluck the soberer
asters with good grace
And call September nothing but September."

~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox ~

I used a black ink pen to outline most of the petals and leaves...
it was fun "working" on them this afternoon.

Here are the free graphics
