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 goodies 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 thisautumnal collage. 🙂
This lovely mix of roses and mums make a beautiful accent to this pretty Autumn table setting.(source)
A basket filled with rust and purple chrysanthemums makes a bold statement on this table too.(source)

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?
