I love Mums. I have the hardy ones planted all over my yard. Unfortunately, this is not the best year for them. We have been gone so much, we have missed most of their prime blooming time. Same for the Asters that are also planted in any sunny spot in my garden. The trees and shrubs are not turning at the same time either, like they have in previous years, so I'm not getting that complete tent of golden orange glow that encompasses our yard.
But I will enjoy what we have! And that's exactly what I'm going to do this afternoon! I've got a lot of yard work to catch up on. We had storms while we were gone, plus the regular things that need doing, and I'm going to have to take it easy doing it. So, I had better get off of here, and get started!
I hope that everyone has a beautiful day!
