I went to Lowe's this week to check out their fall flowers. They still have many summer ones like zinnas and portulaca. But, they also had these colorful mums. It is still too hot to plant them here (it was 100 degrees here yesterday), but soon our days will cool down and our nights, too. Then desert gardeners can plant these in their gardens. I remember how my grandfather loved his "mums". Mellow Yellow Monday for September 13, 2010.
