For the love of mums...chrysanthemums, that is

Photo by Barry Wallace
What is it about pink chrysanthemums that makes them seem to be so much hardier and abundant than other colours of mums.   It's chilly in late October and downright cold in November, but I see huge clumps of pink mums in flower beds all over King Township.   The mums pictured above are in my neighbour George's garden, on Bennet Drive, in behind the high school.   I know, of course that colour has nothing to do with hardiness.   It just that pink mums seem more attractive than red or purple or yellow mums in the drabness of late fall.
Please comment if you wish.

  1. Oh, this was much needed as it is our first day of snow in Metcalfe.
