My husband’s nod to autumn reveals itself with pretty chrysthamums. I had no interest in getting mums this year, mostly because historically, I have planted them year after year, for awhile I had quite a few coming back in the fall, but two years ago they stopped reappearing, I think it was that horrible polar vortex that did them in, so I decided to stop buying plants that wouldn’t come back. However when my husband picked out these two, I kept my mouth shut, they look festive and warm in our front yard and who am I to deny  our home warmth and beauty.
