Last Gasp?

2 Comments

We’ve had a lot of rain, all the plants are sodden and drenched.

I was surprised to see from my kitchen window, a rose bush in bloom.

Yes, it looked better at a distance.
A flower at this time of year, still makes my heart happy.

I had not realized just how hardy hydrangea flowers are.
This particular blossom is not showing signs of age.
I believe it is because temperatures are now cooler than in summer.

Arabis and Rudbeckia are showing themselves not as rain-hardy as some other plants.

  1. I have no roses blooming … about the only thing in bloom is a pot of chrysanthemums that I just set out. So much trimming and pruning to do. You blooms must be a spot of joy on these rainy days.
