Chrysanthemum, Brookside Gardens IMG 8026

 

I love to photograph chrysanthemums and have seen some outstanding examples at the chrysanthemum shows at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland. Brookside Gardens, in Montgomery County, attracts visitors from around the world. You do not need to speak English to enjoy flowers.

 

Subhash Sharma  This is a beautiful blossom of chrysanthemum which is one of the "Four Gentlemen" of China (the others being the plum blossom, the orchid, and bamboo). The chrysanthemum is said to have been favoured by Tao Qian, an influential Chinese poet, and is symbolic of nobility. It is also one of the four symbolic seasonal flowers.

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs as I post them in Facebook groups.
