Our World: November Roses

Peace Rose in our yard. November 13, 2011.

This is my post for the Our World meme.  This meme is a second generation of My World Tuesday created by Klaus Peter and is hosted by five wonderful ladies.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

We got to mid-November without a killing frost, so our roses continued to bloom.  Most of the leaves are off the trees, so it’s nice to still have some color in the yard.

The rose above is Peace, which since it’s introduction in 1945, has become the most  widely-planted rose in the world.  Sam McGredy, a famous rose hybridizer, said of the Peace rose “It’s as nearly perfect as a rose can be”.  I’m not sure about that, but we sure do like it.

Love and Peace Rose in our yard. November 13, 2011.

Love and Peace, a descendant of Peace, is another rose that put on a November show for us.
