We are blessed to live in a region of America with such an abundance of natural scenic beauty.
"Chrysanthemums" are those flowers that come in when most of the other flowers go out, and their vibrant colors and shape to beds, borders, and pots. On the road to my daughter's home, I pass this quaint little road side stand that always gets my attention when I pass by.
The flowers and pumpkins are so creatively arranged that it looks to me, like an artist's palette.
The Chrysanthemums are an attention getters at this pumpkin display. I read that hardy mums are a metaphor for fall. Their warm colors mimic autumn with their yellows, oranges, and russets. There are at least twenty some colors of this flower, that are accepted by breeders.
I also found this gourd display at the roadside stand and thought it was a fun way to share their gourds.
Hope you have an opportunity to view some of nature's finest fall beauty.
