Weather-worn but still sunny in autumn - chrysanthemum flowers

Brightening a corner by the path, some pale yellow escapees from my office - bought in one of those pots of tightly packed little chrysanthemum plants that produce an abundant flowering but then are pretty spent, and are not intended for the garden.  But they can happily grow on, given the chance.

And although they are a bit battered and worn, there is a rather defiant brightness to these flowers which are thriving despite the cold and wind and rain.
