The Mum Hill at Ott's Greenhouses


Late this afternoon, I went to Ott's Greenhouses near Schwenksville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It's the time of the year for their locally famous Mum Hill. Below are a few pictures of parts of the Mum Hill interspersed with photos of some individual potted mums. I love the color and contrasts.

These moutains of flowers are really gorgeous.
In France, this flower is used in cimetery, however, even in a garden I find them so pretty.

It has just only one disadvantage: it does not like to be frost !

The reason why in the east part of my country which is more colder during the night, we rather use heather.

Yay for Ott's!

Last time I was there, the mums were planted, but not yet blooming (http://jamintake.blogspot.com/2006/08/otts.html).

Your photographs are gorgeous, as usual :)

Have a great weekend!

Hi, murf. They are fantastic, aren't they?

Thanks, emily. They shine with color and contrast.

Thanks, kimberly. Glad to provide you with that kind of experience. They are exhilarating.

Thanks, sage. When the mums are blooming, it is autumn.

Hi, mreddie. Glad you enjoyed the colors.

Thanks, cergie. Around here, I think many people like potted mums on their porches and some people will put them in their flower beds.

Thanks, choochoo. They are indeed beautiful. Where you live, does it get cold early on?

Hi, irene tuazon. They are vibrantly colored, aren't they? Thanks for coming by.

Hi, joel reynolds. Glad you enjoyed the mum hill. It is indeed pleasing to the eye. Thanks.

Hi, mikaela. I get to go by Ott's several times a week on my bakery deliveries. So when I saw them yesterday, I knew I needed to come back with my camara after work. Glad you enjoyed my post.

Thanks, kevin stilly. Glad I could post them for your enjoyment.

Mum is the word. Beautiful photos. The only thing I don't think I like about mums is the smell.

Ginnie said...

Man alive! Those are MUMS!

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, moi. And welcome to my blog. Mums do make a beautiful array of colors.

Hi, benjamin potter. That's okay you don't have to like their smell. But their colors are amazing especially in a display like this! :)

Hi, ginnie. Are they though? :)
