CASCADING MUMS

Chrysanthemums from gilded argosy
Unload their gaudy senseless merchandise.

The Mums at Bellingrath Gardens reach their peak in November, but they are still pretty spectacular in October.

Bellingrath's Cascading Mums hanging from the bridge are reflected on the waters of the lake.
