The Last Shining Moments of Mums and More

Like many things in  November, it's almost time to say goodbye to gorgeous chrysanthemums and other strictly fall arrangements.

 The pretty purple plant, shown at the very top of this post, reminds me of a fancy cabbage!

In this post, we share photos taken at the Publick House Country Inn in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.

Aren't the arrangements pretty?  

(I'd like to transport them to our yard!   Ha!)

The purple plant is so pretty! Yes, the flowers are all gone here. In fact, the leaves are gone too.

Happy Tuesday, sweet Susan!

My yellow mums in the back yard are still blooming but of course we have
sunny skies all year! Love your pictures as usual.

Things look so cool and crisp there in your photos. Love the flowers and wish I had them here at my house. However the one thing I can tell you about Georgia - we have flowers like that all year round. We are lucky that way.

I still have Montauk Daisies blooming, a few Coreopsis, but my mums are just about gone. Beautiful colors displayed and really speaks volumes about the beauty of Fall. Happy November, dear friend, XOXO

Hi Susan! Some of my flowers are hanging in there, even my knockout rose bush is stubbornly hanging on to the branches.
I have a really pretty mum arrangement in the front yard. That picks up my day!

The photos of Sturbridge are so pretty! Love the little pumpkins placed in the beds too. Such a lovely pop of color :)

The colors are so vibrant and pretty! My zinnias succumbed to the frost this weekend, but I actually have petunias in pots on the porch still hanging in there. Not for long, I suspect. Thank you for sharing the sights with us!

Have a great rest of the week!

I have a pansy bed that is still blooming quite well. Pansies prefer cool weather anyway. Also have some kind of berry bush that grows on the south side of our house. Not sure what it is, but the berries keep turning more red everyday. November's palette is quite muted and beautiful in it's own way.

My son, our dog and I hiked in the forest yesterday and it was still quite colorful, but October's brilliance is gone for this year.

Loved the arrangements at the Publick House in Sturbridge. They do add a nice pop of color to the landscape.
