hardy mums

please click on photo to see more details.


nothing signals the end of summer like hardy mums. our local grocery store starts putting them out before labor day so I pretend not to see them. I like to think of summer ending on september 21st
. heck, I've swam in our warm atlantic ocean as late as early october after all!
since it is starting to get chilly, I like seeing these hardy mums because that means we get to see pretty blossoms for another month or so.
do you have your mums yet?

Mrs. Brown Thumbs it is said...

Mom and I were jsut discussing mums-as she is looking to fill some found old wheelbarrow, something about the color of her house yada yada. Then she tried to convince me to get some (along with a corn stock and a bale of hay?????)and I told her- yeah I have 2 yellow ones in the attic that I just need to fluff and dust off and on the stoop they go :0)

I do. I have a deep yellow and a purple on my front step. Don't the farm stands and flower shops look great when they stock the mums? I wish I could have a dozen or so in different colors.

LOL, I was like, ooh Mrs. Brown Thumbs, what a cool name, she must have an interesting site. You are way too funny my dear Lisa!

I know Bobbie, I just got a deep purple with a yellow center, but I want more too.

I haven't noticed mums out yet but now that you've mentioned them I'm sure I will. :-)
