Mums Make Us Happy

This time of year, when we cut back our sad, spent perennials, pull out the last of the weeds, and add a layer of fall mulch, we should feel content, satisfied with a good season. But we want more! More color more blooms! When we plant addicts see a neat and tidy garden after a fall clean-up, all we see is holes, open spaces where there could be color!

Lucky for us, mums, ornamental cabbage and kale, asters, pansies, and ornamental peppers offer us a few more weeks of of what we gardeners love. . . flowers.
