I went to the garden center the other day and picked up a few mums.


I love mums....

Don't you?

Welcome Home,
Penny

I do love mums and I especially love how you incorporated the purple grass into the center of the mums. Such a pretty idea.

Miss Jean said...

When I was a little girl in Michigan my grandmother worked at the local greenhouse nursery. Her dining room was always filled with mums. To this day when I see and smell them it always reminds me of Grandma Somers.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I do love mums! I keep the pots when they die and cut them down to about two inches and leave them out all winter in the back of my garden. They sprout up again next spring and grow and by this time of the year are blooming again! It's fun to recycle them this way.

Kim said...

OH yes I do! Now, did you add the grass to yours Penny, or did you buy them like that? I think it's a great touch.
xoxo,
Kim

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love your mums, Penny! They look great; I need to get some this weekend myself. Mums are great and they make me happy when I see them. Kind of like daisies do for Summer!

Janean said...

i adore the look and smell of mums!

Dena said...

I just bought a little pot of white ones myself. It has been so hot here that I have yet to set it outside. I just love the way yours look Penny. I also love your new set up with the separate links :)

Hugs,
Dena

Mary said...

I was about to shop for some and then the rains came! They continue to come and get heavier by the hour - making up for the long Summer drought, hoping we won't be flooded now!

Do you that mums in France are only put on graves! People never put them in or around their homes!

Sarah said...

Beautiful, Penny. I planted some mums a month or so ago, and they already need to be dead-headed. I hope they continue to bloom. Your front porch area looks very welcoming! ~ sarah
