Our Mums have done better this fall than normal. We didn't cut them back as we should have to cause more compact growth, but they have bloomed nicely for a month or so. Carolyn gave Elaine the Mum that is shown on the picture between the garage doors. It has been a beautiful plant from the time of her birthday on September 3, until now. The white blooms were beginning to fade so I cut off the flowers and we planted it in an opening between these that are shown. I hose watered these Mums during the summer and fall and was surprised at the dryness of the soil. Elaine helped me plant and water it and will hope for continued enjoyment of it in the future. Thanks Carolyn.
