Today's Flowers: Mums Hanging at the Supermarket
This time of year there are a ton of chrysanthemums on sale outside the supermarkets in my town.
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.
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.

This is flower heaven! :)
God bless you!
Lovely bright colours!
These outside markets are beautiful here too.
Beautiful Carver! I love the second shot of the different colors hanging together - nice contrasts.
Bright and colorful flowers you have shared with us today Carver. Thank you for making me smile first thing in the morning. Great photos, all of them.
Wonderful, all the varieties of mums you posted. How exciting to start mums from seed - maybe one day I'll do that.
Wow,they are such beautiful colors and love the bed of them...
Nice shots, Carver! I agree with you about mums not being sold...so sad to see them wilt.
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.
I love to visit flowers market, Carver.
And u posted nice macro shot...love it..have a nce day
Mums are cheery blooms. Too bad we can't plant them in our house Heaven.
It is sad isn't it. I thought of what a waste that is..but I think the same of live Christmas trees... Michelle
Nothing, nothing, nothing says fall like mums. Outstanding photos.
These make me wish the weather were nice, it is pouring, I would have gone to the GreenFlea to get some mums .. maybe next week ..
lovely flowers. this weekend i have tried to plant some flowers too. hope it works out though :)
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.

Your mums are very beautiful.
Hello! Nice to be here. Wish to hear from you. Have a nice day.
Let's keep our hearts open to receiving God's Word, so we can be rooted firmly in the truth. Hope you can find time to drop by to "Living beyond circumstances." God Bless.
I know what you mean about the mums being sad at staying at the store! I tend to avoid them, because of that.
These flowers represent a walk with Autumn..bold bursts of final color ..gorgeous!!

very much the feeling of fall. where did the summer go?
Very nice selection of mums!
Carver: You captured the mums so beautifully, a great Fall flower.
Beautifully colorful blossoms! Thanks for sharing ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
i see flowers all over =)
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...
Thanks for stopping by my blog for My World Tuesday and thanks for being a cancer spokesman.
