The title is just referring to the color of this mum. The daisy flowered types have really grown on me this year. They seem so exotic amongst the sea of cushion mums. This one has been doing well and it is exceeding my number one criteria for mums, which is how long they last. Most of the mums seemed so early this year.
The bulb fest continues today. Another 600 tulips and we are going to try to plant 600 Daffs too. That might not be that hard under normal conditions however the planting site is loaded with tree roots, pipes, wires and in one area a gas line. The garden has the infrastructure of a small city running below it. It is almost impossible to dig a hole and not find something. It should be an adventure and all that will be forgotten when the bulbs are blooming next spring.
