    2018-09-29, Barberton Ohio - the Barberton Mum fest.

    The wife and I went - after all, she is a Barberton girl - and the theme was "Rock and Roll". A few shots. All of these are planted mums - not just pots put on a lawn.

    The body of a Stat. It has to be purple, as Barberton's colors are purple and white.

    A picture of a picture of an aerial shot of the mum fest. The whole festival was around Lake Anna in downtown Barberton. There was a plaque with the aerial shot - I took a picture of that.

    The usual festival stuff - but the mums were really well done. We also bought a few pots of them. The last picture does not show the festival set up yet.

    Enjoy.

    I can tell I’ve been living in England too long—I thought this was a celebration of mothers.

    “Allo, mum! What’s up guvnor?”

    Indeed. Baffling thread. :)

    Lovely pictures although I’ve never heard before of a flower called a mum. Eventually worked out short for chrysanthemums. I guess Chrys Fest doesn’t work.

    Nice to see they did a Strat instead of one of those dorky Tele things.

    That would be too similar to Chrys Mas :twisted:

    Mums are like the Teles of flowers.....they're tough, they come back year after year after year, and there's a variety of colors. I didn't know there was a "Mum Fest"...but I shouldn't be surprised....

    I am careful not to mention Mums at home. About 15 years ago, dad and I bought 11,000 mums and told my step mom that we would help her. Then we left for the summer and she was stuck raising them by herself. She was not happy with us :rolleyes:. We retired the greenhouses a few years after that :D

    Exactly why I named it this way. Bad humor from the colonies!
