Mums the word...

Hey there all you "can't wait for Fall" peeps,
look what I found this afternoon at Lowe's!




the first batch of mums for the season.




My big planter next to the garage door was really ready for a change. The verbena had stopped flowering and the rest looked so tired. (sort of like me by the end of the summer) So the geraniums will be transplanted into containers in the back, joining in with some of their friends . Wacky me, I decided to go with a varied look in this container.

I just couldn't help myself.

Let the party begin...


joining in at these parties:

  2. All my plants are looking tired from all the heat we had this summer. I started cutting a lot of our perennials back last week, much sooner then I normally would! I love mums and yours look great in that planter!

  3. Debra, love these mums! I wish I could put some out now. Everything is starting to look a little stressed, at this point. It's still a little warm for mums, here; but I'm living vicariously through you!

  4. I noticed the large shipments of mums coming to town this past weekend. Such beautiful colors and they really have me dreaming of fall despite the high temps and smokey skies from all of the wildfires. Your pic is beautiful!!

    Hugs,

  5. I can't wait to get my mums but it is too soon for NJ. They wouldn't last that long with the heat.

  7. Very fun! My Texas bluebonnets are at their peak here in Colorado, so I don't have the heart to replace them yet. Our cool mornings here are a sure sign that fall is on the way!

  18. Debra,
    Yeah!!! I, also, went to Lowe's looking for mums. None in yet! I came home with a new indoor plant instead. Told "Mr. Ed", " I need something green to view"!!! I'm done with brown! Thanks for showing your mums!!! I'll be watching closely for their arrival here on the Prairie!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  21. Oh, I hear you! I can't wait to replace my wilting, non flowering petunia in front of the house with some mums! It's still a tad muggy here in New England - I'm waiting for it to really start feeling like FALL!... Donna
