My World: This is Really the Last of the Roses

Memorial Day Rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. November 26, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

These are the last of them — I promise.  In spite of cold nights in November, these roses held on.  I took these pictures the day after Thanksgiving, and brought the roses into the house the next day.

Memorial Day, the rose in the picture above, is a beautiful, fragrant,  pink rose.  It usually blooms for the first time around Memorial Day, which I assume helped contribute to its name.

Southern Belle Rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. November 26, 2010.

Southern Belle is a new yellow rose for us this year.  It is in our new flower bed near the road.

Sedona Rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. November 26, 2010.

Sedona is also in that new flower bed.

We still haven’t had a killing frost yet, but I’m confident that these are the last of our roses for this year.

    It must be sad for you to bring in the last of the roses. What a wonderful collection of rose you have. You must work hard in the garden. I love gardening but my back is saying its had enough. It is very frustrating.

  3. Ruth Hiebert Says:

    Lovely. With your care,you may have fresh roses on your table at Christmas.:)

  4. MaryBeth Says:

    Very beautiful roses, George. Maybe a few more will bloom. that is what usually happens even after a hard frost. Our coldest temp this winter was 14 last Tuesday and it got everything also it set records for so early in the winter. Even trees that hadn’t lost all their leaves got bit and don’t look so pretty now. MB

    Lovely roses, George! I especially like the little snowflakes drifting down over them 🙂

    It’s freezing almost every night here in the Texas South Plains.
