As the leaves begin to make their change, our roses also begin a change. The blooms of the autumn season always intensify and we see some of the finest blooms of the year.
This week’s blooms are no exception:
I love how the pink coloring around the edges of Moonstone is intensified. The spring blooms have an almost pencil like edge to them, but in fall they seem to fill the center with color….
Sedona is a rose that typically has a darker center, but in fall you see a much more even toned bloom with intense hues of pink.
Is it just me or does this rose tend to produce more white/red blooms in fall??? It seems to me that in early spring we see more red/white colored blooms…. hmmmm
I always sow a few packs of zinnia seeds in late summer in the hopes of having a second crop of blooms in the fall. Zinnias are a favorite in our garden and are probably the easiest of all flowers to grow from seed. We use them in our fall arrangements.
