I'm tempted to run out and buy several large and colourful mums for my front steps to replace my dying formerly-beautiful red geraniums. This pathway of mums makes me smile!

Mums mean fall and football to me, memories of my college days when we girls wore mum corsages to home games. Thanks!

I thought "Mum" was the word for "Mom" in England?

These are really beautiful so I'll keep mum myself!

Had to cut way back. Just couldn't do it anymore!

Such cheerful beauties.

Haha! have never heard them called that before Brattcat, but it makes perfect sense as they're the symbol of Mothers Day, here in Oz anyway.. 'Mums' I like it!!

Your photo is purty, but I've never been drawn to mums --too much uniformity, perhaps? I don't know what it is.

Gorgeous flowers against the dull background!

Well they're screaming FALL! FALL! FALL!

I like the contrast of the step boards with the colorful mums!

Beautiful...

BTW - I was in Brattleboro yesterday ... driving through - what's that building they are building on Route 5 near downtown?

Birdman said...

They are so symbolic around here. So much color right into early winter. The strong survive!

Sara, I have no idea. I drove north on Route 5 yesterday and didn't notice a new building going up...shows how observant I am.

Love the way you composed this one showing the different materials of the ground.

Chrysanthamums ... yes, as Grace said, they are the symbol here for Mother's Day, so they are an autumn flower here as well ... but I will guess that the term 'mums' is the ending of the flower name. I have never heard it used like this. But I like it ...

That is a very nice path edging ...
