Two Thoughts Tuesday - Mums and Me

I try to keep my blog posts here about entertainment but with the arrival of the Fall season - shorter days, cloudy skies, cold nights, etc. - I just start to feel BLAH!!! So this year, I decided to ward off those seasonal "blues" with "reds!!!" Aren't these flowers so bright and cheery? I found a wonderful deal for these mums at a local plant nursery and decided to get a few pots. It just made my day because I had never seen mums this color before. I've only seen yellow and white mums, which I've had before but could never seem to keep going the following year. We'll see with these ones this year...

I transplanted them in some nice white pots I found on clearance at Kmart.  My miniature roses in the square-shaped pots are not in bloom right now but I think they'll hold up and greet me with some lovely flowers come springtime. 

In the meantime, I think the Fall season is starting off great with these lovely red mums to greet me when I come home from work each day...whaddaya think?

Hi Liggy -

The mums look very nice. I've tried putting them in our yard but the snails devour them. The only way to keep the snails away is snail poison, which we don't use because of the cats and rabbits. So, no mums for us.

Our cats stay indoors and I don't see rabbits in our neighborhood so no worries there...but then again, I don't see snails either and hopefully won't have to deal with those pesky things!

Very pretty Liggy. I haven't potted mums yet but I plan on doing a few pots on Thursday. I love this time of year for all the bright colors. Have a great week. I hope to be back next Tues with a post.

Thanks for stopping by, Cheryl...I hope you get to enjoy your potted plants as much as I'm enjoying mine. :)

They look beautiful! The red mums are very vibrant in those white pot (which are really cool too) and I really like how they spice up your door way :)

I've planted a few and had them last years. They even got big enough that I've cut them and transplanted them everywhere around the house.

Hi Liggy

That looks really nice you did a great job... I don't see any blah there! They brighten up the walk to the entrance nicely!
