The beautiful flower..Mums



Chrysanthemums, often called 'mums', are a genus (Chrysanthemum) of about 30 species of perennial flowering plants in the family Asteraceae, native to Asia and northeastern Europe.

When Chrysanthemum flowers are boiled to make a sweet drink in some parts of Asia. The resulting beverage is known simply as "chrysanthemum tea" ( in Chinese).

The 2009 countdown is just starting and wish you all are having a happy new year.

I like chrysanthemums too! I even hide myself inside a bush of chrysanthemums and take a photograph! :)
