Today's Flowers: Multitude of Mums


This time of the year, in central NC where I live, chrysanthemums are popular for fall planting.

It takes a certain amount of optimism to plant mums when too much late heat or too early hard frosts take their toll. Kind of a Goldilocks dilemma as in, this day was too hot to plant and this day came on too cold too soon but sometimes the timing can be just right for glorious mums.

All so pretty row upon row waiting to be bought. I have kept such mums in their pots where they have bloomed in the early fall over and over again for many years.

They are gorgeous -- someone's optimism really paid off. Thanks for sharing.

The mums are popular, also the fall asters. I have a nice golden mum in a planter that has just started to bloom, the ones you photographed are insanely loaded with flowers.
