Welcome the winter

Welcome the winter

            This time around, I'm about to share with you all, some of the blooms of my orange chrysanthemum plant.
            This one has been in blooms for quite some time now, and I expect it to bloom for another fifteen days or so. For the time being, this plant in just a single pot has added some brilliant colours to my small garden. It's a feast for the eyes to see so many buds, and almost five to six blooms in each cluster.

            Anyways, I won't talk much and will let the shots, I've captured from my cell phone, do all the talking. It was a hard time selecting the ones to post. Since, I capture anywhere between 30-40 shots every day, it becomes quite hard to leave some good looking shots.

            For now, this is only in one pot, that resulted from just a single plant I brought last year in winter. The good thing about chrysanthemums is that they are capable of giving you hundreds of different plants from just a single plant. Then it's upto you how you want to use it. The bad thing, it just blooms once in a year, so you need to keep it feeding for the entire year, working hard on it, caring for it, for just a month of blooms. For now, I'll leave you with these shots. Up in the menu is the two more chrysanthemums that are coming next. Till then, keep visiting and HAPPY GARDENING!
