Roses in December

... a scarlet blossom braves the winter gloom.
A trace of summer lingers here and there

on bushes as disheveled as the hair
of sleepers roused from winter-darkened rooms. --Tiel Aisha Ansari, Roses in December

  1. Nell Jean,

    Your roses are doing well for December. I have blooms on the potted miniature rose by the waterfall. They look frozen right now!

    Hope you had and a Merry Christmas... Have a Happy New Year, too.

  6. I've still got a couple hybrid teas blooming. The knockouts are in a budding stage right now with only one pink bloom open. It's amazing what these plants can take in terms of weather. I would guess in your zone, they're looking a lot better than mine.

  8. Thanks for visiting my blog, it gave me a chance to link to yours and enjoy yours. As I looked at the pictures I felt like I was look at the same kind of plants that grow here. Only thing I am in California. I am in zone 7 so it gets a bit colder, but close to yours. Our roses finally really froze a few weeks ago. I also planted larkspur seeds on Christmas day...funny coincidence.
    Happy growing in 2010~
