      The Bay Area chapter shared a picture of a painting by Monet - not water lilies but CHRYSANTHEMUMS! I never knew Monet was a mum fan. Apparently he loved gardening and he painted the mums that were in his garden.
So I started checking around and found that he painted these mum paintings between 1857 - 1897. A good way to see the mums they had back then - the colors and types. [Orange County Chrysanthemum Society Facebook post.]
