Blooming Friday: Chrysanthemums


chrysanthemums in our garden


It’s quite sunny today, unlike the previous days which were rather windy and rainy. So I took the opportunity to take some photos of our chrysanthemums which have been blooming for about three weeks now.


On a cold sunny December day, seeing them can make you stay outside for a little bit more while trying to get warm under the sun.


With orange flowers on green foliage, I think they are not that far from red and green, the “official” Christmas colors. But whether they have the “official” colors or not, I find them as lovely and festive as plants with red flowers or berries. In fact, I believe I’m quite lucky to have them when it’s almost winter time.


I just hope they last until Christmas. Maybe that would be too much to hope for. But I’m crossing my fingers *smiles*.

Your Chrysanthemums are beautiful. The first one instantly reminded me of Tithonia, with its vibrancy of color.

Very pretty! The thing I love about certain flowers are what appears to be tons of baby flowers in the middle of them. :)
