Today's Flowers: Mums Hanging at the Supermarket

Photobucket

This time of year there are a ton of chrysanthemums on sale outside the supermarkets in my town.

Photobucket

It's almost sad to me because so many of them will sit out until a hard frost without ever being sold and planted in the ground.

Photobucket

They are pretty to look at and photograph before I go inside the store to do my shopping.

I've never bought chrysanthemums to plant in the fall but I used to start them from seed. Some years I grew a wide variety of chrysanthemums from seed, successfully, but I haven't done that it ages.

Wonderful, all the varieties of mums you posted. How exciting to start mums from seed - maybe one day I'll do that.

I am drawn into fall colors. And you took lovely shots! Lucky you to take those shots. I am so hesitant to take photos at the supermarket. I am also hesitant to ask permission.

Bengbeng said...

Beautiful photos of those gorgeous blooms. I love all the colors of mums this time of the years but I rarely buy any. I do what you did and take photos of the ones displayed outside stores.

As your said, many will probably freeze and die but we have perserved their beauty in photos.

I know what you mean about the mums being sad at staying at the store! I tend to avoid them, because of that.

MyMaracas said...

Beautiful! I love to see the mums outside all the stores this time of year. It is indeed sad, though, to think that so many will languish there. Maybe there should be mum rescue groups...
