This week I have found some of the most beautiful roses of the season … or could it be that because the season is quickly coming to an end and there are so few of them …. they just seem more precious and beautiful. Monday and Tuesday our temp dipped down near freezing which sent me out with a bucket of water on a rescue mission. My hands were actually freezing! A prelude of things to come!
The weatherman has a more pleasant prediction for the end of the week with temps climbing back to near 70. And this means that I must get in the garden and stay there to begin the fall clean up. I have been traveling so much that I fear I am way behind on garden chores.
I am more than ready to roll up my sleeves and get to gardening!
Here are the pretties I rescued this week. Hopefully some of the buds that got a bit frosty will thaw and bloom on!
What’s going on in your neck of the woods this week?
Wishing you all the best!

Great to see that your roses are still hanging in there, Teresa! Here, many of my roses are pumping out flowers and there are lots of buds that will continue the show … if the weather cooperates and we don’t freeze anytime soon. Our forecast sounds a lot like yours, with mild-ish daytime temperatures and nightime temps above freezing. Happy Friday!
Hey Connie, Yes the fall has sure been beautiful here. I so enjoy following your blog and see the pictures of flowers, kiddies and doggies. Wish you the best thru the holiday season!
They’re exquisite, Teresa. “They are more beautiful if they are few.” Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh is so right! Fall leads to the holidays! Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
Take your breath away beautiful! Thanks for sharing, and inspiring. Enjoy!
Thanks Curtiss Ann. We have been so fortunate to have a very pretty fall. Wondering what winter will bring. But we are ready and excited for the holidays. Best to you!
Hello Miss Teresa!
As always, I really enjoyed your post and the roses were absolutely beautiful. I hope you are gearing up for winter. I know this is not your favorite time of year but at least you have Thanksgiving and Christmas to look forward to with your family and specifically with that beautiful grandbaby of yours!
All the best,
Well, I am trying to gear up for winter. So curious if we will have the POLAR VORTEX conditions again. Funny, I had never even heard of a polar vortex! Today we are moving some roses that have outgrown their spot and making plans for next spring. And, testing recipes for Thanksgiving! Looking forward to the holidays. How are you liking your new community? Glad you stopped by.
those flowers are beautiful, glad you still had a nice season for your roses despite some of your losses from last winters bite.
