Chrys-n-the-mum

The month long season of chrysanthemum has finally come to an end. For the whole month, I relished the beauty of these wonderful flowers, was subject to different stages of their bloom, which, at times made me marvel over the varieties, nature has to offer us. A single flower, from budding to blooming travels through various stages which can easily dupe a non-gardener into believing that these all are different flowers altogether.
Today, I am here to share some handpicked clicks from dozens of clicks I took through the entire season, so that we could all relish the beauty of these flowers, hoping to see more of these beauties in the next season. Chrysanthemums, for their beauty, are an absolute delight to have in your garden, and having them in different colours, shapes and sizes, and varieties, is an absolute delight for any gardener, I think. Maybe, this is one of the reasons different varieties of chrysanthemums are used for a dozen of different purposes ranging from flower arrangements to garlands, and offerings to deities to bouquets. Though, not very fragrant flowers, the beauty of these flowers overpowers their lack of fragrance, and hence, these regularly feature as top favourites throughout the year.

Over the course of weeks and days, the new entrants in my potted garden have grown bigger and healthier. The black rose that I brought in, has started blooming. The marguerite daisies I shared with you have started budding, and also the pansies have started blooming. Did I share with you, the strawberries? No? Okay, the strawberry plants too have started blooming. Hopefully I will have some homegrown strawberries to share with you all in the coming weeks. But before that, I am very sure I will be having some gerberas blooming, and the phloxes too, and did I mention the pink dahlia I had last year? I too stood its ground throughout the year this time, and will also be blooming, in a month or so. Hopefully, I will be taking you through some of these new additions in the garden in the coming weeks. Till then, HAPPY GARDENING!
