Autumn Chrysanthemums

What colors represent a particular season? As children, we learn to grab the red, orange and yellow crayons when it is time to depict an autumn scene. Looking at a bed of chrysanthemums in bloom, I marveled at the shades of peach and violet that mingled so beautifully with the yellows and oranges. The next time you choose paints or fabrics with the intention of creating something that evokes a sense of autumn, remember the chrysanthemums.
