Starting to feel like fall, well some days anyway. Lower 50's this past Friday night here. Few more days and then it's officially Autumn. Still summer and I don't like to rush the seasons. I enjoy them all. Pulling bins from the attic to go through. No fun doing that.
I did purchase a few pots of mums. They are not my favorite flower but there are some pretty ones out there.
Mom called them a funeral flower. I guess because they were mostly used at funerals and gravesites as she remembers them more for. Mom grew lots of flowers but don't remember mums being one of them.
I like the red or bright yellow ones if the garden center has them. A few I purchased in the last few years are planted in different areas of the yard, some planted under dogwood in front. So easy to root. I have some that I broke off from the main plant and just stuck in the ground. I like to have them grow a little more natural and not as rounded. I still have to cut them back between blooming periods to keep them in shape and to keep blooming longer
Home Depot has some pretty welcome mats and this one on the porch can go at the front door.
