I have Mums!

Today I would like to invite you over to Mellow Yellow Monday . Last week was the first time I linked up to this blog so, now that we are old friends over there I can invite company! LOL

And tomorrow I am linking this post to Bloomin' Tuesday over at Jean's Blog, "Ms. Green Thumb Jean". She is going to be so surprised that I am posting a flower picture! I have only posted pictures of trees over there. So, Shhhhhh...let's just surprise her tomorrow!

Okay, on to my Mums! A couple of years ago, the Hubs got some clearanced mums way after the season for some extremely low price. I think he got 5 of them. He planted them in one of our flower beds and we waited to see if they would survive through the winter. Well, last Summer/Fall sadly there were no mums. We were a little bummed but, it was a risk to plant them when we did. And to be honest, I have never had much luck with mums coming back each year.

Well lo and behold, this little lady sprouted up a couple of weeks ago and is bloomin' like crazy! I am so excited to see these bright yellow flowers when I really didn't think I would.

  10. I've never had much luck either. I usually buy a pot, let my bloom and dry and then throw the whole thing away until next year. :)
