Macro Monday: Colorful Mums

I don't remember ever joining in on Macro Monday before, but I've been enjoying all the photos for quite a while now.

This is a shot from back in the fall. These chrysanthemums were in pots outside a Whole Foods store in Austin. I love the colors and the way they seemed to sort of glow when I got in for a closer look. Very autumnal. Like pumpkins and high school football games.

We could use some of that color in the garden right now. Everything's pretty dead at this time of year, even here in central Texas where the growing season is a long one. I'm hoping for an early spring. Could we please just skip the rest of winter this year, and go right to April?

Happy Monday, everyone!

  1. yes, spring, indeed. However, it is g.oing to be spring-like today and one of our trees is budding out. It is all a little strange, actually. This macro monday looks like a fun site

    1. Yeah, some of the redbuds around here are already starting to put out buds. Seems a little early, but then the climate has changed so much in the last few years, you really don't know what to expect anymore. The only thing you can count on is the red cedar going crazy right on cue.

  2. Thanks for these bright blossoms during shivery weather!
