One of my favorite things about Autumn besides

the crsip mornings is Chrysanthemums…..also commonly known as mums!

Mums come in a variety of vibrant colors and the best part is,

garden mums are a perennial so they will come back every year if planted in the ground.

I chose purple mums to add a touch of fall to my living room.

When I first brought them home there was not a single bloom open!

It has been fun to watch more open every day.


Be sure to stop by my friend Artie's blog for his blogarage sale!

He has some amazing goodies you won’t want to miss out on.

Have a great weekend my friends!

Love your purple mums! I once planted my mums in the ground after the season and they came back for years. I need to do that again. Buying mums is on my list for this weekend. Love Autumn!

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is get my mums. I love the color you chose. That green door!! So pretty.

I totally agree with you about Mums, I just can have too many plants. The first time we traveled through New England in the fall, I was amazed at how people decorated their porches. From then on, I was hooked. I buy a new one, or two, each year and plant them in the yard-at our home now, I have five plants-two in the front yard and three in the back. I get sad when the cold weather arrives and they die back, but then each year they come back even bigger. In our back yard we have a purple, yellow and red, in the front yard I have a red and also a yellow and then a straggly one that hasn't bloomed(which I can't remember the color of).
Thanks for sharing.

I do love mums during this time of year. I rarely buy them though because they don't last very long. I think it's too warm here. Your purple ones look so pretty in the window sill.

The mum pics are gorgeous. Love this time of year. Your pretty mum looks so great on the window sill.
Have a super duper week end.

Mums are such a cheerful flower. I remember during Homecoming week at school, the students could buy a MUM for a friend or that special someone. They always remind me of Fall. I bet they look so pretty in your home, Deserae.
