Mum's the Word!

The final assignment for Lowe's Creative Ideas was all about mums! Here is my project for the month! I still have a lot of bare spaces from my losses during the drought this summer.
I love this old ladder and borrowed it from my bedroom to use for the autumn display. I purchased it at a garage sale for $1.00 and painted it blue.
I know a lot of people don't care for mums, but I always celebrate the entry of autumn with mums in my garden or on my front porch.

I think this color is my favorite!

I took  the pumpkin and mum pictures last year at Stoney Creek Farms here in Noblesville. I used the same colors in my Lowe's mum project.

Here is another shot. I took these pictures quickly with my point and shoot. I had hoped to get better shots before posting about the project but between the cold rainy weather, sickness and work it never happened. These will have to do.

Thank you for stopping by and for following along while I blogged for Lowe's Creative Ideas! It has been fun for me and I hope it inspired you with ideas for your own garden!

 A special thank you to Lowe's for this wonderful opportunity!

Mums are a fun plant to have in the fall garden. I don't know why people are so opposed to mums. They are like happy exclamation points in the fall garden.

A cute and festive little corner! I like some mums - it depends on the color. And they are so cheerful for fall!

I don't know why so many people disparage the lovely mum. They provide that last bolt of color that we are lacking in fall!
