Nice To Be Home

After being away for nine days it was nice to come home to the fall weather! Cool and damp is much more inspiring for putting out the pumpkins and doing the fall planting than the warm weather we were experiencing when we left. A quick walk around the garden in the mist this morning made me happy I have so many different kinds of chrysanthemums in the garden. Most of them are just left over from indoor floral displays using potted plants in years past that were planted after the flowers were spent with low expectations. Although some of them bloom earlier in the year, most of them are just coming into their own while the rest of the garden flowers take a break. More than enough for cut arrangements to enjoy this time of year!

Dear Sheila, Yes, it is always nice to come home, isn't it? I am not a big fan of chrysanthemums, but that one has to be the nicest I've seen. Pam x

Wow, that is one gorgeous mum Sheila. I wouldn't mind having one of those in my garden.
Glad you are getting rain ~ I saw last night that your current system is moving our way so maybe we'll get a little moisture too.
