I'm often asked... how did you come up with the name BLUE ASTER? 

I came up with the name back in 2008 when I lost my dad to cancer.  My dad was a lifetime farmer in Iowa.  Days before he passed, he was being transported from Ames to Des Moines for a special procedure.  He had been in the hospital for over a week.  As the EMTs were taking him from the ambulance through the doors of the hospital, he asked them if they could stop for a minute so he could gaze up at the sky one more time...the beautiful blue sky that he hadn't been able to look at in several days. This story was told to me by the EMT... who stood well over 6 feet tall and built like a football player, with tears in his eyes.  The outdoors and sky, well that was my dad's office over his lifetime.  Now I never get tired of looking up at the beautiful blue sky!  And asters,  well they were my mom's favorite flowers and, you guessed it, she carried a bouquet of asters in their wedding.  Blue Aster... In memory of my parents.
