The Last Rose

November 20, 2016  •  12 Comments

The last rose in an unprotected area of the garden to keep its beautiful form after the first really cold mornings last week, stood as a shining pilar of beauty and strength basking in the cold, blue morning light. The temperatures at sunrise dropped to 17ºF (-8.33ºC) almost every morning, and this rose endured the biting frost, defying the deep freezes that withered other roses.

Thanks, Julie. It doesn't have much smell in our dry climate.

Hi Tim, Thanks for sharing this last breath of summer rose. Winter has arrived here, and after the fifth year of trying, I was unable to "escape" -- so I'm even less happy about winter than ever. So this rose is particularly welcome.
Sending you Light and hugs.
