'Tis she who cheers the dreary days;
'Tis joy to know so sweet a friend;
No fairer flower blooms 'neath the sun
Than autumn's queen Chrysanthemum.
-Hattie L. Knapp

AH!Lovely! Mums are amazing aren't they for the variety of form? Beautiful photos.
Goosebreeder: thank you. I am continually surprised at the many different varieties.
so beautiful and delicate
Char: and yet so huge!
I very much like the spidery varieties! I think I may have missed a great show!
Stine: it would be worth your drive to Hamilton.
many people around me were commenting on the yellow tipped spidery ones.
those are lovely flowers! love the one in yellow :)
u may view mine if u have time
Breathtaking photos! I love how the Chrysanthemum petals curl up, so festive!
Marice: it's always so hard to decide which ones are a favourite
Diane: thank you. I was trying to take some macro shots of the curling petals, but realized that if you just click on the photos you get a perfect closeup. I like that "festive"!
Wow! Those are beautiful mums!
Flowers! They never fail to cheer me up :)
I see in your other blog that you are a Postcrossing member as well, great to find your blog.
Seisaat: glad to add a bit of cheer to your day.
and yes, I love Postcrossing!
Okay, I am back. I have been running like crazy. Now I'm going to sit and breath for a moment.
I used to buy Mums for my Grandmother every year. She loved them but she couldn't keep them alive. She liked the orange ones best, I liked the others like the pinkish ones here, and the purple ones.
I have added your blog to my feed reader & my blogroll, so I'll be back!
I am surprised that my two pots on the balcony are still alive. I usually kill the flowers I love best. Sad, eh?
