CHRYSANTHEMUMS

With the passing of the fuchsias, finally killed by the chilly nights, Garry suggested we get some mums. They are hardy well into November and frost resistant unless it snows (NO, NO, NO … NOT THAT!) …

And so the 2015 fuchsias passed into memory, while the two pots of mums took their place on the deck. They look wonderful with the background of bright autumn leaves.

  1. I love chrysanthemums since I moved to the USA. Love the explosion of colors either in pots or in the ground. In my native France they symbolize death and on November 1 (La Toussaint or All Saint day) people bring a potted chrysanthemum on their loved ones’ tombs. My mom was very surprised once when one of my American friends offered me chrysanthemums when she came over for dinner.
    Flowers and plants have different meanings, depending of cultures and countries.
    For me, so many years after leaving France, chrysanthemums symbolize fall and not death.
    Lovely photos, as always.
