Fall Flowers - Mums

Found in PetalPix at http://ow.ly/dvqo2
My favorite fall flowers are mums; I love marigolds but they stink so that is why the mum gets 1st place.   Mums grow in Cali almost all year long but I think of them still as an autumn flower since fall is when they just take off in the Midwest.  You will see multi colored pompoms filling the landscape some the size of bushes.  They have so many lovely fall colors to choose from that you can easily fit them to any color scheme you desire.  My favorite was always the beautiful browns and deep reds.

Since Mums are so hardy they make great indoor arrangements and wreathes.  Fortunately they also make some very realistic looking artificial Mums that can be turned into many beautiful fall decorations, here are a few that I found on Etsy:

Colleen, I love mums too. In the Northeast, they are about the only thing still blooming in mid Fall. Love your collection of autumn delights!

Your fall collection is beautiful (and not just because my Mums greeting card is in it :o)).
