October Tour of Iowa: Mum is the Word

Regarding a brightly colored, hardy fall flower, Chrysanthemums (mums) are at the top of the list.  Just when most tender annuals begin to decline after a long, hot summer and a few autumn frosts, these beauties begin to work their magic with delightful blossoms in shades of red, yellow, orange, purple, pink and more.  In addition to the outdoor display, mums are also great for use in any indoor arrangements, and with daily fresh water, they last forever!

Look for the little creature that landed among the blooms!
