Chrysanthemum Buds

Belgian Hardy Mum
Chrysanthemum 'Milano Pink'

Yesterday while picking up a few mums at Valley View Greenhouses I took a couple of pictures of their crop of mums. They really have some nice looking plants this year. Unlike last week when how much color the mums were showing was important this time I got some that the buds were just cracking open. The soft pink of the first one is not really what many would consider a fall color but I got one anyways. The blush color will contrast nicely with some purple Asters in the garden, hopefully.

This second shot was kind of a depth of field experiment. It didn’t come out exactly how I wanted and will need a reshoot. The idea is okay but the technical aspects need a little work.

The stove is heating up, so to speak, at work. It looks like the fall season is going to be okay.

It is good to here things are heating up for you and that the fall looks good. We are still in finger crossing mode.

Love that pink chrysanthemum. I think it should work quite well with the Asters.
Finger crossing mode is a great way to put it!
