The weather has been soooo cold and this morning when I took a garden walk I feared all the buds I have been watching would be lost. What a surprise I received …. blooms everywhere. I scrambled to get my rescue bucket and get them cut before the temps dip down tonight.
I hear the temps will be on the rise next week. Wouldn’t it be nice if all those buds out there bloomed. I would love to be like my deep south friends with my own roses on the Thanksgiving table …. probably a pipe dream!
But these pretties made it to the rescue bucket…
In other news I have lost my Barnels. And, I love my Barnels. Hope they don’t end up lost for 15 years like these guys were…
I found these last fall and it had been at least 15 years since I’d seen them. But, hey they are Craftsman, so there is a lifetime guarantee but I couldn’t part with them. 🙂
Lucky for me my good friend Wendy Tilley has her new website up and running and she has plenty of Barnels …. check out TheRoseGardener.com
Now it’s time to start thinking about the holidays. Tons of fun stuff coming!
What do you think??? Is it going to be a mild winter OR is the Polar Vortex gonna visit again.

Your roses are absolutely gorgeous. In our climate ( Barbados ) our roses don’t do nearly as well as yours do , but with the not-so-hot days coming I look forward to some lovely blooms too.
