Rose

Late Bloomer

A pink rose is fully in bloom, with petals very slightly curling and drooping. Some of the veined petals are beginning to brown a tiny bit. from the frosts they have had. There is a new, deep pink rosebud with opening green sepals, showing promise of another bloom. The background is a dark green of the indiscernable leaves behind.
Late bloomer

This one I could not resist! It was taken today, in the below freezing late fall weather. This beautiful rose bush was featured more than once in my Flower a Day project, so today when I knew I would be seeing it, I made sure to have my camera with me, and I wasn’t disappointed. It does seem unlikely, that such fragile blooms would be so cold hardy, but I really got a lift seeing all the bright roses and in particular this lovely bloom along with the promise of another to come. I hope you all have a bright day.
