I remember the first time I saw a chrysanthemum was when I was about 9 years old. Someone dropped it on the ground, I picked it up and was amazed by the amount of petals it had. I thought it was a marigold but then found out it was a chrysanthemum, I decided it would be my favorite kind flower.
Many years later I learned its English name from a book of the famous author and illustrator Kevin Henkes, which amazed me even more.
I love its shape, petal, colors and its name.
I‘ll keep drawing chrysanthemums until I find the perfect chrysanthemum of my own ❤️
