Fall Chrysanthemums

September 29th Sunday night ~ September 30th Monday morning

This time of year I guess we could say "mums" the word
because we see these fall favorites on every front porch.
I love chrysanthemums: the fragrance, the colorful flowers, 
the fringed leaves so dusky green.

I just saw a bright orange-orange mum at the store this week.
It's tangerine orange instead of the darker pumpkin orange color.

I like bright yellow ones too:

My most favorite fall chrysanthemums are deep red:

In some cultures, chrysanthemums are symbolic of sorrow,
but how could a flower bring anything but joy,
especially one that celebrates autumn?
Tomorrow, more of my favorite mums.
