One Last Picture of...
...my pretty yellow mums. It is supposed to be down to 29 degrees tonight - BRRRRRRRR.... and I was afraid the freeze might get them. I will cover them - that might help. They are jus' still so pretty - I hate to loose them. Just a suggestion for ya though - I strongly recommend this particular variety of mums. This was the first year we had grown this kind - yellow "Bethany". It is a season extender mum - which means they bloom later and longer into the season. As many of the other varieties have already faded - these are at their peak. So if you can remember that name "Bethany" - you might want to pick some up for next year - they are one of MY new favorites.
You know how I explained to you all earlier that all mums have women's names - and I said there were none named "Cathy" that I was aware of - well, my dear, sweet friend Amy e-mailed me a picture of a beautiful orange-bronze mum named "Cathy" - that I believe was featured in Southern Living. Thank you Amy - I so enjoyed that - I'm thrilled to know it exists - I'll have to hunt them down for next year. Thanks for sharing with me.
You all have a beautiful and blessed Tuesday - I believe we will be carving pumpkins tonight!
