Fall flowers color explosion-flower pictures

It is Chrysanthemum time again. End of September, time when nature's colors are fading. As a compensation, the mum, with it's classical beauty offers the last color explosion before the frost hits.
Chrysanthemums are one of my favorite flowers too, so I shall post a hole series of pictures till the end of the season.
Here are some picks with a bunch of colorful chrysanthemums to brighten up your day.
A bunch of golden chrysanthemums

The golden flower.

The name "Chrysanthemum" comes from Greek and it consists of the two words: "chrysos" meaning gold, and "anthemon" meaning flower.
These golden chrysanthemums are a real firework of color.
No wonder they are called the "Queen of the Fall Flowers."
A bunch of white chrysanthemums
Look how delicate these white mums are.
With the scissors in your hand, I am sure, you too, hesitate a moment before this nature's perfections.
A bunch of pink chrysanthemums
In most European countries (in my country too) the chrysanthemum is known as the death flower and is used almost exclusively as a memorial on graves, most likely symbolizing its association with immortality.
White chrysanthemum flowers are also the symbol of honesty, truth and sincerity in many countries.
The white chrysanthemum is the flower of Triangle Fraternity, a society of engineers, architects, and scientists.

Golden chrysanthemums
Did you know that the term "chrysanthemum" is also used to refer to a certain type of firework shell that produces a pattern of trailing sparks similar to a chrysanthemum flower.

There is also a "Festival of Happiness" in Japan that celebrates the Chrysanthemum flower.
