Fall is in the air

Red mums blooming in the fall

Happy Autumn Equinox! Here at Lydia Street, it is starting to feel like fall. The temperatures have dropped in the evenings and the mums are starting to bloom.

For years and years, we would buy potted mums to sit on the steps. The bright colorful blossoms would be wonderful until winter actually started to set in, and then I would toss them into the trash.

Why didn’t anyone ever tell me to plant them? They make beautiful garden plants when they are all green and then, when you least expect it, they burst out in full bloom. That’s starting to happen here.

    Oh, aren’t they grand? I just got a pot for the steps and will plant the pot later. The transplants always seem to thrive too. Double duty darlings. I love your photo!

  2. I believe in perennials!
