It's Bloomin' Tuesday!


Welcome!


Today I am showing you what will probably be the last of my blooms for this season. I do have some pictures that I didn't show yet and I will be posting those on Bloomin' Tuesday as long as there are others posting also. Remember we are interested in all blooms even from a bouquet. Let's keep bloomin' all winter long!

I bought these first 2 mums this year. I've never had good luck with getting them to come back so I just left these in the pots.

I love the color of this salmon mum and I can't believe I planted it last year and it came back!

I also planted the next 2 daisy like mums last year.

They are just starting to bloom now so I think I need to move them to a sunnier spot next year.

I took the rest of these pictures Sunday.

What would fall be without beautiful mums. You picked some wonderful colors to brighten your autumn garden. I really like the daisy like mums. You still have quite a few things blooming still Jean. Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!

Love the colors of your mums -- they are some of the prettiest I've seen. I'm with you -- I'm going to have to get mighty creative if I'm going to come up with any more posts for Bloomin' Tuesday from now until next Spring! ;o) I visited a Pumpkin Ranch today with the grandkids though, so I definitely have a post for next week!

PS - The post of the helicopter and Jersie below is so cute!

Hello Jean, I just love all your colorful mums. What great fall colors you chose! I live in a area where I have different blooms through the winter. We have no snow. Today it was in the 90s but it should start cooling down soon. In January we sometimes have frost and that causes a problem. Other than that, I will be participating in Blooming Tuesday all winter.
Happy Blooming Tuesday!
Love, Ann

Good morning Jean,You have some wonderful blooms. The colors of your mums are so vibrant. I love daisy mums but find them hard to return year after year. I have had the most luck with planting small ones in spring.

Hi Jean, Your mums are lovely. I don't have luck with them coming up the next year either. The daily like mums are unique. I have never seen them. You still have my very favorite - the Black Eyed Susan. I am planning next year's flowers already. I have many great ideas - thanks to you and Bloomin Tuesday.
Hugs,
Sweetie

As usual, I seem to be Jill-come-lately, Thanks for letting me link up. I suspect that this may be the last week of flowers for me. Re: Mums - it just wouldn't be autumn without them.
