The Weekend in Black and White combined with Today's Flowers

The frigid air this week was too much for the mums and pretty much all the flowers. It occurred to me that these mums which were bowed down low and began to turn brown with the cold snap would still look good in black and white. It is interesting to me how you can't even tell they are browning without full color. I always think mums are for the optimist where I live because the odds are it will either get too hot if they are planted too soon or they will get frozen if planted too late. These mums were planted in a public garden on the late side and the buds barely opened before they were frozen.
