While walking dogs with my friend, we passed this stunning specimen of the Dendranthema x grandiflorum, more commonly known as Chrysanthemum. That’s “mum” to family and close friends.
Your Procurrent fun fact, from About.com: Chrysanthemum symbolizes “cheerfulness, optimism, rest, truth, long life, joy. Considered to be a noble flower in Asian culture, mums are used as an object of meditation per a suggestion by Confucius. Also the birth flower for November.”
