It was a tradition at our school to sell mums during the Homecoming week. Any one who wanted to buy a Mum for that special someone could, and they would be delivered to their classroom sometime during the school day. It was fun to see all the people walking around with Mums pinned to their shirts and dresses...and even more exciting to get one. These Mums were not small, but huge, and it took careful skill pinning them so they didn't droop all day. It got us in the spirit of the Homecoming week and the upcoming football game. Mums have always reminded me of Fall, and when I saw them at the store the other day, I couldn't help but stop and appreciate.
