Carpe Diem #297, Kiku (chrysanthemums)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today another wonderful autumn kigo, Kiku (Chrysanthemums), THE autumn flower in so much different colors and very strong. As I look into my backyard I see all the wonderful colored Chrysanthemums like a rainbow sprouting between the falling leaves of the Sakura (cherry tree). Really here autumn has begun.
