It is a pleasant surprise to find the chrysanthemums getting ready to bloom up a storm of color, while most of the other flowers are at the end of their blooming cycles. The yellow mums on the deck make a good splash of color in the middle of the tired purple petunias. they keep so well when cut that I usually have some in vases until Christmas. Even the cheap plants in little planters they sell for not much money this time of year have transplanted well. I never tie my old plants up well enough and they spill into the aisle with profuse flowers that force any passersby to admire them.
