Autumn is my favorite time of year. It's time for comfy sweaters, warm drinks and pretty colors.
And, although our weather stays warmer than most, our trees do change color and my mums bloom profusely.
For me, mums are the perfect late season bloomer. With so many colors available, they will brighten your yard as much as the colorful changing leaves.
I always look forward to when my mums start blooming. This red mum has been blooming every year since 2003. The color is one of my favorites. Mums being hardy and our winters saying relatively mild, mean the mums continue on year after year.
Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful. ~Jim Carrey
