Tis the season for mums. This potted beauty (sorry, I don’t know the variety) sits in my back patio where I can see the bright sunny hue from inside the house. For tips on growing and caring for mums watch Jerry & Autumn Horrocks’ video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2Ysv5Y6tYo.

Mood-Changer: vibrant flowers

November 9, 2011

Flowers bring cheer to dull landscapes, gloomy rooms, and grey days like nothing else. A modest pot of vibrant blossoms is all it takes to make an impact. Set against an ordinary lawn and shrub in and around the garden, on a patio, front porch or indoors is an instant mood changer.

Even when the sun doesn’t shine, it’s difficult to be anything but cheery while looking at these brilliant flowers through my westerly windows. Except for the zinnias which I’ve enjoyed all summer, waiting for the mums and azaleas to bloom was well forth the anticipation.
