Last week when I blogged about summer and the gorgeous roses my mum gave me, I recalled another bunch of flowers she bought me that I took photos of and forgot to post about on here.
Just check out those chrysanthemums – they’re like giant pom poms!!!!!!!
I got them just before Christmas, so huzzah for autumn/winter flowers! And they definitely added to my Yule-tide cheer: every time I saw them, I kept giggling to myself at how big and funny and cute they were.
This has begun a bit of a love affair with fancy chrysamthemums for me, and I’ve since found out that they’re the flower for those born in November (according to certain lists), which includes me! How have I only just found a love for them?!
And now I’ve begun a search for chrysanthemum fabric. I did find these two pieces of reclaimed kimono silk on ebay, but couldn’t afford them:
I’ll keep looking for more chrysanthemum pretties.
