Flowers for the market: July 19, 08

Week of July 20: my mums started to bloom. I didn't trim the top of the mums in the spring so it just went ahead and bloomed. Since I have two mum plants (mums are really easy to split and multiply), I think I will cut the top of only one plant this spring, so that it becomes bushier and bloom more close to the fall, and leave the other as is so that I can have an early bloom.
To go with my mum branch (only one stem for the many burgundy flowers you see in the middle), I picked orange to yellow tone of zinnias and dahlias. The obedient flowers (white) and the fennel flowers added interesting spikes and spread to it.
