Asters are in bloom:

Echinacea in bloom  

 

 

St. John's Wort

(Hypericum perforatum)

Latin name comes from the tiny holes you can find in its leaves, like little pin pricks letting the sun through the leaf. It is a go-to herb to treat minor burns, bruises, viral infections and nerve pain (sciatica, neuralgias).     

Plantain

(Plantago major, P. minor)

Plantain grows in compacted soil and was called "white man's foot" by the native peoples because it seemed to appear everywhere they walked. It provides quick soothing, cooling relief for itching and wounds.   

Calendula  

(Calendula officinalis)

This "pot marigold" can be seen by its cheery orange (to yellow) flowers blooming "through the calendar", or most of the summer (Gerard and Wood) . This herbal sunshine moves the lymph and remains an impressive wound healer.
