Chrysanthemum Autumns Flower

Chrysanthemum Autumn’s Flower

I know Autumn is on the way when my chrysanthemums begin to bloom. Autumn’s Flowers arrive and help us welcome the change of seasons with beautiful colors of amber, yellow purple and reds.

I wrapped a potted mum for our lovely neighbor across the street. She always shares her baked goods and hubby is tickled by her generosity and so is his belly. A strip of burlap frayed at the edges and a touch of organza ribbon glued with a dot of hot glue make a lovely presentation.

A quick walk around our yard and you can see our Chrysanthemums ( mums)  are showing plenty of color in the garden. It was an overcast day yesterday. But I managed to get a few quick snaps put into this collage. :-)

This lovely mix of Roses and chrysanthemums make a beautiful accent to this pretty Autumn table setting.

A basket filled with rust and purple chrysanthemums makes a bold statement on this table too.

Katherine’s tid bits-most chrysanthemums  also called “mums” originated in east Asia and were brought to Europe and then made their way to America

Mums the word my friends, do you have chrysanthemums in your garden?

  1. So beautiful, I do love flowers. I hope you have a great weekend xx

  2. What beautiful colours. Have a great weekend!

  3. Nothing says autumn to me like mums!! Love that rust and purple combination – never thought THAT would work, but it does.

  4. I usually have some but not this year. They’re so gorgeous, though and quite hardy!

  5. No real mums here, but still your are gorgeous and still can’t believe it is almost October. Fall is definitely here. Thanks for sharing Katie and have a great weekend now!!

  6. Yes.. the mums are blooming! Love the idea of putting the burlap around the pot. This will be wonderful to use as centerpieces and then I can give them as gifts!

  7. Great idea of prettying up a pot of flowers to take to someone and gorgeous pictures.

  8. My birth month flower! Thank you so much for making me smile!

  9. I wanted to invite you to the Friday Flash Blog Party I hope you’ll join us and link up. Who knows. You may just get highlighted!

    The party goes on ALL weekend.

  10. When I think of mums, I think of homecoming football games. I don’t have any in my yard, but they sure are pretty.

  11. I do! They add such a nice rustic touch to any garden… plus, they’re relatively easy to maintain! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  12. Love the burlap around the pot of mums! In my home and my staging for events, I wrap a lot with burlap in fall and early spring as well! It’s earthiness is lovely :)
    Your pictures were delightful to enjoy this morning with my cup of Chai tea! I found Cinderella pumkins used as planters in Country Garden magazine, wrapped with grapevine and stuffed with mums, vines and such.. My weekend project!
    I sure enjoy your site, hope your back is all better!

    • I love the earthiness of the burlap too Gail. Thank you so much for asking about my back, it is improving a little bit every day. Your kind compliment is just what I need this morning, thank you for your bloggy friendship. xo

  13. These do all make me think happily of Fall. My in-laws come with us to the pumpkin patch each year and my MIL always gets her flowers. :)

    • We used to take our grandchildren to the pumpkin patch every year but as they got older our daughter and son inlaw take them now. I miss it. I used to buy them pumpkins and pick up mums for our porch xo

  14. I used your burlap and ribbon idea today – so cute. Thanks for another great idea.
