Bonjour chère amie,

Je suis heureuse de vous retrouver et d'admirer toutes ces magnifiques compositions.
Vos conseils sont très judicieux...
Une belle manière dans ce dernier billet de rendre hommage à cette espèce qui semblait n'avoir sa place que dans les cimetières. C'était fort dommage !

Gros bisous ♡

Chrysanthemums in all shapes and colors really carry a brilliant message that autumn has arrived.

Thanks for the information and styling ideas. I might just have to bring some mums into my home this week. xo
