Flowers in bloom

'Bernadette' Chrysanthemum in bloom in my garden.

‘Bernadette’ Chrysanthemum in bloom in my garden.

This time of year is one of my favorite.  I love the smell of the cool air in the morning and chimneys burning at night. I love all the fall decorations and I wait for the leaves to change all those pretty colors so we can take pictures and go for walks in the park.

Another fall favorite is seeing all the pretty chrysanthemums (mums) out in everyone’s yard.  I used to buy them each year and discard them at the end of the season. A few years ago, my father-in-law found out I did that and told me to put them in the ground so that I can enjoy them again and again. I am so glad I listened because they look gorgeous.

This plant is really special to me because it shares the same name as my sister, Bernadette.  She is a big sunshine in my life and how fitting that the flowers are yellow.  So when she isn’t available to talk to I can catch a glimpse of these beauties and am reminded how blessed I am to have such a wonderful sister.

Have a blessed day!

Belinda
