Chrysanthemum, also known as mums, is my birth flower, which symbolizes cheerfulness, friendship and abundance. It is one of the most prolific flowers I know, because it comes in different sizes, colors and patterns. It is so beautiful, and reminiscent of the thanksgiving season, or the fall, when it is most available in this part of the world. I also like the fact that this flower grows both in tropical and hyperborean climates. Chrysanthemum symbolizes faithfulness, and yellow symbolizes wisdom (gift of the Holy Spirit, Isaiah 11:2-3) and joy (fruit of the Holy Spirit, Galatians 5:22-23). I pray for both every day!

This is my entry to Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack Travel Theme Challenge: Yellow.  Sorry it’s quite late.  The picture was taken in Amsterdam in November 2013.



  1. Such a beautiful yellow, my favorite color!
