Allan Gardens Conservatory Chrysanthemum Show 2013

Mum's the word!


Well, it was very quiet in the Conservatory during my visit this afternoon. The staff tend to ignore you anyway and no one bothered me as I was clicking away taking these pictures of the current fall flower show.

According to the Conservatory's Facebook page, there are over 100 varieties of mums at the show. Here are a few examples I photographed.

I really must read up on the history of chrysanthemums being hybridized over the centuries in China. The flowers just remind me of a bad tasting tea!

So....bring yer mum to see the mums!
