Fall Blooms Continue….

We are still seeing quite a number of blooms in our garden. The temperatures are much cooler now. We had a low of 38 this week. No frost in sight, so the roses continue on.  I must admit I am glad to see them for a few more weeks. I had a little surgery on my knee last week and the remaining blooms have been a source of joy to me as I stared out the window in boredom. I am now up and about and have resumed my daily garden walks.

‘Signature’, a beautifully formed hybrid tea is now putting out some nice blooms. My only compliant are the short stems……

I was particularly glad to see this nice bloom of Lady Bird. This is a new rose in my garden this year and has been slow to start. I am already looking forward to seeing this rose in bloom again in spring.

A rather small, yet lovely bloom of ‘Opening Night’ hybrid tea. 

Our shrubs of Queen Elizabeth have put on a nice show this fall with the seasons most beautiful blooms…

    Thank you for stopping by my site. Your roses are beautiful! The rose names are all different to what we have here in South Africa, but many look the same. Our rose expert in South Africa is a man called Ludwig Taschner and he was very involved with the international Rose Convention which was held in Johannesburg a few weeks ago.


    • Marisa,
      Very nice to have you return the visit. Several of my rose growing friends attended this event in Johannesburg and said it was a wonderful occasion. Its great to connect with rose lovers around the world…… 🙂


  5. I love the color of the Queen Elizabeth roses! I’d love to plant some like that someday.

    I love QE roses. There is a cluster of then in the City Park Rose Garden here in Manhattan, Kansas. I photographed them earlier in the summer, but the last time that I went by, they were done blooming for the season. You have a beautiful assortment of pinks and red.
