Flower Photo: Spider Mum, 'Wind Dancer'

Yellow Spider Mum Photo by Aquariann

The wind whipped through Delaware yesterday. Even walking from the car to a store while holiday shopping was a struggle. I chose the wrong coat to wear, and the hood would not stay up. Thus my hair twisted and tangled in a tumultuous tango. It reminded me of this fascinating yellow spider mum named "Wind Dancer" I photographed while visiting Longwood Gardens during the Chrysanthemum Festival last month. Stay warm this weekend, my dears!

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.
