Don't call me chrys
This is this year's chrysanthemum lineup. I maybe went a little overboard?
I haven't ever much grown mums before, except those full-of-flowers ones you see at the grocery store in Autumn. The good members of the National Chrysanthemum Society, Oregon Chapter, assured me that they were easy to grow and care for. And I now have a 6-page closely-spaced handout on just how easy.
A few years ago I saw this pretty thing on display at the Japanese garden, and it hasn't ever quite left my head. I'm not growing for exhibition or anything, I just want pretty flowers.
Frances would like you to know that she's prettier than any of those plants, so Pay Attention to HER.
