First mums

October 17th, 2005

We’ll go back to drawings tomorrow. In the meantime, I am reveling in the blooming of the first of my chrysanthemums. I took these pictures yesterday after a a bit of light rain. Today, unfortunately, we had a cloudburst and most of the blooms are looking rather bedraggled. I think I have about 30 different varieties of mums this year. I haven’t counted them, but that’s a pretty good estimate. Due to my ongoing gopher problem all of these are grown in 3 to 5 gallon pots. If I didn’t do this, they would all be underground and fattening up some rodent long ago.

Prom King – Anemone style


Red Wing – is actually a spoon variety but doesn’t look like it here.

  1. Beautiful mums, especially with the clinging raindroplets!!! You know, an alternative way to look at the gopher problem would be a daily source of fresh vellum… not sure about the time span needed from skinning to scraping to curing, but perhaps just the thought could be cheering??!!

  2. Thanks for visiting, Sarah.
    Yes, if I could just catch the *&^%^ thing I would gladly tan his/her little hide!
    It’s starting to look like a scene from Caddyshack in my yard.
