Perfect timing! I am overhauling the garden for fall this weekend! Nice to see a few things other than just basic mums (although I do love them!)
I was just thinking my yard looked a little blah now that the summer flowers aren’t blooming. The chrysanthemums are gorgeous!
I have all but the flowering cabbage in my gardens. My rudbeckia has been blooming since July and is even more fantastic now! When it’s time to cut back the flowers, I separate and move them around the gardens so the next year I have even more.
I love separating my flowers too.
I love Chrysanthemums! They’re so pretty.
These are all so pretty! I would probably kill them, haha.
Thanks for the garden flower tips for fall. It will have to cool down here a little more for me to be able to plant any of them.
