Today I'll show you a few more pictures of the mums but I also wanted to remind you that today is the last day to enter the $50 Gift Card Contest to Lowe's! The folks at Lowe's Creative Ideas are providing anyone who comments on the mums project posts this week an opportunity to win that $50 gift card. All you have to do is comment on this post, or my wheelbarrow planter mum post, or my October 1st mum post! Share an idea about using mums in the garden in the comments and you are entered to win!
Here's another look at the mums in the wheelbarrow planter.
Some red mums from the garden up close. These are in the birdbath garden.
I actually like the daisy flowered mums more than regular mums. Here's a lavender colored one:
This one is called Jessica Louise. I don't know who Jessica Louse is but somebody must have liked her enough to name this mum after her! The flowers are very large over 2 inches in diameter.
The last two mums were mail ordered in the spring. I ordered several others but so far the flowers haven't emerged yet. Rampaging rabbits nibbled the mums down too much right after planting.
I'm still waiting for the 'Sheffield Pink' and 'Clara Curtis' mums to flower - they will be breathtaking once they do!
Don't forget to comment!
