RED BLOOMING CHRYSANTHEMUMS

FOTD – September 23 – Chrysanthemums

I bought them a week ago. They were covered with buds, but no flowers were blooming. Since then, each day there have been more flowers. There are many more buds — and I bought a second big pot in an autumn rust color, but its still all buds. Meanwhile, in the autumn, the flowers are mums in every autumn color.

  1. THIS red I like very much. And I love the tiny but full flowers. With ‘these’ I could live but we usually only get garish buckets of ‘only’ rusty, pale yellow or a dirty white colour. Nothing as vibrant as these. But as I told you before, here they are often (in France exclusively) bought for cemeteries and I guess, a flaming red wouldn’t be bought by many.

    • I love the autumn colors. I have some rusty orange ones that are just beginning to bloom now. But of course, it’s RAINING again. It was so muggy this morning I turned on the air conditioning just to dry the place out. maybe tomorrow, suddenly autumn will show up. Any day now!

  2. They’re enough to cheer up even the dullest of days. Glorious shots, Marilyn. 🙂

    • Thanks Alli! I love the true autumnal colors of mums, too. I got a second barrel of them in an almost rust orange-brick color, but they haven’t bloomed yet. I’m hoping this week will bring some non-rainy days and everything will perk up. Including the foliage!

      • I bet they’ll look wonderful, so fingers crossed for a shower or too to help them along. Looking forward to seeing more of your gorgeous photos of them. 🙂
