I spotted these beautiful mums in the Poconos the other day. It was early in the morning, so one can see the dew collected on the flowers. I love their vivid colors, perfect complements to the pumpkins and gourds that so often make up traditional autumnal displays . . . but I always lament their November demise, when they fade and become "leggy," their stems drooping over to touch the ground.
