This weekend we loaded up the car with a trunk load of beautiful mums and pumpkins! I was (clearly) in the mood for a lot of white. I also cannot get enough of funky heirloom pumpkins! They are so beautiful. And of course I had to get two big, bright orange ones for carving! Overall I just love the color combination.
Here they are on our stoop:
SO, they may look pretty now but truth be told I REALLY struggle with keeping mums alive! This is actually my second round of mums... The current state of the old ones can be seen below.
I am usually pretty good with flowers and plants, but mums just get the best of me! I honestly don't know if I'm watering them too much or too little, or if they have too much sun or not enough sun.. I just don't know! Any tips or tricks?
