It turns out that the mums we planted last fall didn’t die, after all.

You remember it, this massive flowering bush we planted out front that my mother mangled as it was planted (tearing off about a quarter of the flowers in the process, but hey, it’s probably better than I would have managed with that large plant!).

The ones in the above picture where you can see the entire stems (on the left and right of the plant) were the ones that were torn off. We hoped by sticking them in the wet and fertilized ground, they would come back to life when summer rolled back around.

Well, they did. In fact, their purplish-white blooms began coming in… yellow!

Okay, so it’s not that interesting. And then I found five dollars.  But the winners for the giveaway have been announced and this seemed like a more fun way to deliver that message. Happy Monday!

  1. If you want to delay the blooms until fall, cut them back. Here in zone 8 I cut them back until July 4. Then they bloom in Sept or Oct.
