Mom to Mum

As we’ll be spending some time in the U.K. in the next month, the kids have been practicing calling me “mum” and “mummy” instead of “mom” and “mommy.” 🙂 And speaking of mum — but the floral version not the parental one — Annecy is covered with them right now.  

The traditional flowers to leave at the cemetery on All Saint’s Day are chrysanthemums. They’re hearty and resistant to light frost, so in addition to decorating the cemeteries, they (along with some other fall foliage) brighten the sidewalks, canals, and roads of Annecy, even on cloudy, rainy days.
