Fall Flower Pot

As the gardens fade, pots of mums seem to pop up in people's gardens and in front of homes. These hardy flowers can withstand the cooler autumn temperatures (though here it has been unseasonably warm). I love to extend the flower season as long as possible. Whiteness will descend only too soon.


  1. Hi, Susan! Here I've learned "mum" is short for "chrysanthemum" as an English learner. Mums are very favored in my country. Chrysanthemum dolls, life-size dolls decorated with mum flowers on the wire frames, attract people in the parks or at the castles. I like the chic red color in your photo.

  2. I don't have any Mums but their fall color can't be beat. I see pots of them when I walk in my city neighborhood.
