Mum's the Word for Autumn

Even though yellow is far from being my favorite color, it is pretty in mums.

Mums, short for chrysanthemums, are  generous and hardy flowers for fall.

When the sun shines down on our yellow mums, they look like spun gold.

It makes me so happy to see these lovely flowers in our yard.

Plus, they were  among many September birthday gifts from Patti, a dear and faithful friend from high school days!

What color mums appeal most to you?

What a wonderful display of mums. I like yellow mums, but those pinks were a delight to see.

Don't have any right now but I might need to go find some.....

Thanks, Susan, for stopping by my place. You are a blessing!

Oh yes I do love mums and have two plants on my patio of yellow ones that I got last year and they have blossomed again. Yours look so lovely. What a nice birthday gift!


I love mums too. Yours are lovely. My favorite color are copper ones.

Mums are main décor here in our town, on porches, front lawns, everywhere. They are so pretty.

Lovely mums! Your entrance looks beautiful, and very inviting for Fall.
Yes...I have them to greet visitors, too.

I love mums in the fall and always try to buy some. I seem to buy the yellow (even though its not a fav color) because they are so bright and pretty for Fall!!

hugs, Linda

Yes, I love mums too. Yellow is not my favorite mum because I want a change from summer marigolds, Black eyed Susans, and such. For mums I like deep scarlet and dark oranges, the subtle shades of autumn.

This is funny I have another friend who keeps asking me when I am putting my mums in.

Well i like both your pink and yellow.

Mums are the perfect flowers for Fall. I love them in all colors. We have plum colors, orange and yellow. happy weekend.

Mums just sing Fall, don't they Susan?
So welcoming, cheery and they just brighten up the front entry so very well.
Yes, We have several mums too-but yours are exceptionally bright and full!
Happy Saturday,
