TODAY's FLOWERS



More participants here at here





Now all flowers are gone and the trees are naked. To have some colorful spots in my garden I put these Chrysants on the terrace. They bloom even when it is cold and frosty.

Chrysants are used in Belgium mostly for graves. On All Saints day, people are going to the graveyard and put Chrysants on the grave of their departed family members.

I love them in my garden.

Your cute cat seems to love the chrysanthemums too!
They are also put on the graves here in Austria, but they are also lovely in the garden because of their nice colours!
