IN THE FIELD: First Flash Of Fall


Autumn is here! The days are getting shorter and more temperate…the nights are getting longer and cooler…and the Chrysanthemums are everywhere.

      It’s the word of the month…well, probably more like the season.

    I like their scent!

    • October 2, 2013 at 2:45 pm

      They do have a nice scent…especially when there are a lot of them in one area!

    Burst of color, great photo David. Great wallpaper shot

    Wow! I just love this colour, and the image is wonderful. I can almost smell them (love their scent, too!)

      Thanks Jo…thinking back on that day…I should have bought this plant. It was so full of blossoms…duh. I like their scent also. Ahh Autumn.

    That SPLASH of colour was a welcome sight on this dull grey day. Thanks David!

      Glad to assist with brightening up the day for you!

    Gorgeous flowers! Some of the last flowers of 2013!

    • October 3, 2013 at 9:29 am

      This sure was a nice bunch. It’s been a good year for the wild asters also!

    Wow and DOUBLE Wow! Incredibly beautiful, David.

      Thank you thank you John! I love the color of these…they remind me of the free range eggs we buy from the farmers market. The yolks are the same color!

    Yes, another WOW from me too dear David, Thank you, love, nia

    • October 3, 2013 at 9:33 am

      Thank you Nia, it sure has been a good year for these flowers!

      • October 3, 2013 at 11:28 am

        This is so good… There are some years like that. But I am afraid the winter seems would be hard this year… You are welcome dear David, love, nia

    I like how these fill the whole frame. Very pretty.

      This plant was enormous (about 3 feet across) and was actually in a 9 inch pot. Truly a spectacular specimen!

    Great splash of color, lovely 😀

      Thank you Eva, this was a really full plant…I should have brought it home with me!

    These flowers are amazing, they can stand cold for a long time. My grandma used to grow a lot of them and if I want to enjoy fresh flowers at home, I always buy Chrysanthemums, they last so long 🙂

      These plants really do hold up well in the cold…and even in the rain except for the white varieties…they don’t seem to do so well. CAn’t wait to plant some at the new house…but which color…there are so many to choose from!

  12. October 28, 2013 at 5:07 am

    These are absolutely lovely! Such wonderful warm tones. Wanna have the whole bunch. 🙂

    • October 28, 2013 at 3:18 pm

      This was/is a really good year for mums. The rains held off and the nights have been cool which helps them bloom longer. I really like the golden yellow varieties too!
