More mums for me

Every year, I wait eagerly for the month of December to be a witness to one of the most prolific flower shows in my small garden. This show is hosted by the three different varieties of chrysanthemums that I have in my garden. All three varieties, spread over half a dozen pots bear hundreds of buds over this month long show with mesmerizing flowers, painting my small rooftop in their hues of white, and orangish-yellow.
The sheer numbers of flowers is one of the best thing about these plants, and considering the amount of care they need, it's one of the best plants to have around in your garden, be it in the front porch of your house, or among those few pots in the small balcony of your apartment flat. Though, the wait is a bit too long, since these plants bloom just once in a year, in winters, but, the sight of the blooms just makes the wait worth it.

This year too, as usual, the chrysanthemum blooms have started appearing in my garden, and I am now ready for the month long bloom festival.

It's still not the time for all the blooms to come up, but as they all come up, I will capture them all with my lens and will share them all with you. As for the winter, I had got some phloxes, petunias and pansies, all of which have started blooming. The seeds of Marguerite daisies and the nasturtium seeds I had sown earlier in October have now grown into good plants, which are due to bloom soon. Also, the two new rose plants I brought in, seem to have adjusted to the new environment. Maybe, next week, I can take you through some of these new additions in the garden. Till then, HAPPY GARDENING!
