We made our annual trip to the mum farm yesterday. Driving up, it is a sea of color with pot after pot of mums in various stages of bloom.
I bought two beautiful orange-yellow plants for the front stoop, two rust plants for the urn on the side of the house (one that is opening and one in tight buds to replace it when the blooms start to look sad) and a beautiful dark magenta for the back porch. I also got three packs of pansies for the flower boxes on the shed. I spent a total of $17 dollars. It pays to head out to the farm.
