Bloomin' Tuesday...

I still have A LOT of flowers blooming and I am thankful about that. I chose to post only Mums for Bloomin' Tuesday this week. To join Bloomin' Tuesday and/or just view the beautiful flowers click on the Bloomin' Tuesday Banner on the bottom right of my page. Let's keep this going through the winter!

These are the Mums from my childhood that my Mom grew when she was still with us. I moved some of them to my yard about 5 years ago. They started out a nice peach color and as the years go by they turn a shade of white. Thanks Mom!

These are Tabitha Mums.
These are Ursula Mums. (these are a very bright yellow)
I'm not sure of the name of these Mums. This is the 3rd or 4th year with these Mums.
...and this is the Sunflower Tree that I have been posting about. It's getting ready to open. I was standing under this limb, it's probably 12 to 15 feet tall so it's a little blurry. I am waiting on some of the lower blooms to open so I can post those.

How wonderful to have the mums from your childhood. What a treasure. I love the white daisy ones the most. I had some like that at my old home in at. Louis, I miss them and the purple ones. I would split them up and make new batches each year. I did not get to bring any with me. as in the contract they only let me have 3 plants out of hundreds. I was lucky enough to get some of my hosta collection divided and starts brought here over the years we were working on this house.
Sorry I did not mean to go on an on.
Have a great week.

Love your Mom's mums! What a treasure to have. The color of the Tabitha Mum is gorgeous! I also love the angel trumpet from bloom day. Beautiful picture! Jean

Your mums are so pretty. Mine are still in the process of blooming, but I won't have any where near that many blooms.

I am totally freaked out by the snake-post above. You are one brave soul to hang around and snap pictures of that snake while he went grocery shopping!

Love these shots of the mums. They are the perfect Fall flower -- such warm, earthy colors. Love them!

I'm looking forward to that sunflower tree to open. Not sure I know what that is.
