MUMS THE WORD


Our local grocery store had some beautiful Mums for sale. I couldn't resist, so I bought a plant and have been enjoying its unusual varigated colors.
As always click on the photo to enlarge it and see the detail.
I just checked out Mr. Mappers' post and you have got to see his shot of the Hornworm. You must enlarge it to really see all the Eyes staring back at you.

Wonderful fall colours. I also picked up a mum almost identical to yours!

It is almost as if a painter picked up a yellow tipped paintbrush and gently stroked it along the petals. I would have this one in a minute at my house.

Beautiful Fall Colors! We have some mums at our local grocery store - but none with these colors. The ones I found were just orange or a kind of Maroon Red. You've inspired me to try to find some like this over the weekend.

Paula said...

Oh, Sue. These are gorgeous! The colors are perfect for fall. Can't wait until we get our front yard completely finished so we can have mums, as well. :) Enjoyed seeing your little kin by the water in one of your previous posts!

I love chrysanthemum, a lovely burst of colour just in the season when you need it most. I used to look after a big old fashioned English garden, and up past the formal areas there was a patch beyond the herb garden dedicated to growing flowers for the house. In autumn this was full of so many varieties of crhysanthemum, a riot of colour when you least expected it.

Good morning, I should be sleeping, but I think the shot I got for the pain in my knee has me hyped up.

Beautiful flower. Thanks for your visit. Have a great week-end.

I had this mum last year and loved it. It didn't come with a name did yours?

Wendy said...

Beautiful yellow and orange Mums - it made me think back to the "go-go" days, when those colors were popular for clothes.
