This lovely fall weather has done more than give late raspberries for us to eat; we`re still admiring roses…in November!
Even with a serious case of frostbite, the rose ‘Frau Dagmar Hastrupp’ manages to glow with ethereal beauty.
Glossy new foliage on my ‘Colorific’ rose is testament to the mild, sunny weather we’ve been enjoying lately.
Julia Child is still cooking up creamy, buttery yellow buds.
The miniature rose ‘Debut’ continues to unveil copious blooms. The flowers are more pink and white than the scarlet/white presented in warmer weather, but no less lovely…
The climbing rose ‘Stormy Weather’ has quadrupled in size since I planted it, and it’s loaded with flowerbuds…again. So of course I decided it was time to dig it up and move it across the yard. Now that I know it’s a climber I placed it somewhere it can climb, against the back of the house in my herb garden.
The empty spot vacated by ‘Stormy Weather’ will be the perfect place to plant two new roses I bought (on sale) recently. ‘Crimson Bouquet’ and ‘Pretty Lady’ are tucked away in the greenhouse in case I don’t get around to planting them until spring. We’ll see, in our mild climate it’s still appropriate to be planting roses in November.
