Mum time

Usually, the weekend of our anniversary, I usually by our mums for the fall.This year I am late.

This weekend, we went to our friends at Cape Island Home and Garden and our mums for fall. The colors, as usual, were radiant, but my usually method of choice is getting tight close buds, so they last through October. This year, a rich purple were my color of choice, along with a few burgundy smaller mums and a small yellow mum.

Mums always have happy memories for me, as I remember my Dad raising them in our back yard in the house I grew up in.Even when Dad was gone, I made sure I had mums in my wedding bouquet in his memory.

I thinks it’s safe to say that it’s a large reason of why fall is my favorite time of year!
