It has been so wonderful this year to still have roses trying to give a bloom here and there in the rose garden.
‘Crimson Bouquet’ has three blooms still clinging on the branches on a cloudy cold day. This is my favorite rose and I was thrilled to get a cutting from it to root for me this summer after several attempts over the years. I just do not have much luck with getting root cuttings to start unless it is hydrangeas.
Elsewhere in the garden this little achillea is still trying to grow and bloom after all the others have been long spent for the season.
The Foxgloves have had a growing spurt getting ready for next springs blooms. Those green leaves really stand out in the flower bed now that everything else is brown or dying.
While the Pansies seem to be just setting in the window boxes and not doing much growing at all.
Everything else in the garden has went to sleep for the winter while I make plans and already dream of blooms to come next spring.
“For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,”
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home .
Everyone Have a Wonderful Weekend &
