I love flowers.
As I arrived at my Thursday school last week, I was greeted at the doorway by some of the most magnificent flowers I have ever beheld.
These Japanese chrysanthemums stand almost shoulder height. The diameter of the flowers is at least eight inches.
I was delighted to find the chrysanthemums again this week had hardly atrophied at all. Yet another reminder that I am living in a far different climate from my native lands next to Lake Superior. Here we are in mid November and flowers are blooming all over the place.I miss the snow of my past winters…but when it comes time to leave these year-round flowers, I will miss them too.
