Six on Saturday 20.11.21

This week I had to search for things to put in my post, nothing was really jumping out at me. After a good wander round yesterday, I managed to find six for this weeks offering, nearly all were roses having their last fling before the frost comes tomorrow, here they are.

No 1 Rosa Bonica

The roses haven’t let me down, this is Rosa Bonica and still has lots of flowers on it. The mild weather is prolonging the flowering, frost due tomorrow though.

no 2 Rosa Iceberg

Rosa Iceberg has flowered all summer long and is still carrying on with lots of flowers and buds to come. I will delay pruning back a little longer.

No 3 Geranium Rozanne

Geranium Rozanne is another plant that has been flowering its socks off since it started flowering in May, surely it must stop soon or it will be worn out.

No 4 Rosa Golden Wedding

Rosa Golden Wedding, sent for our Golden Wedding five years ago, has flowered on and off and still has a couple of buds, but whether they will manage to open is anyone’s guess.

No 5 Rosa Ballerina

Rosa Ballerina with its last flowers, no more buds to be seen on this one.

No 6  Rosa The Pilgrim

The pilgrim has loads more buds but I have a feeling that they won’t open. Lots of flowers open at the moment so I will enjoy them inside I think!

Those are my six for this week, what would I do without my roses!

I now have more leaves to rake up, but not as many as last week, thank goodness as we have had a very quiet week as far as the wind is concerned. Next doors oak has been shedding its leaves in my garden at the back, but no acorns at all this year, last year the squirrels were digging up the back lawn and burying them all!

Thanks as usual to Jon The Propagator for hosting, please pop over to him for photos of plants around the world.

  1. And your roses were patiently waiting for you to find them! They’re so lovely. I had Iceberg once and it never looked so perfect as yours.

    I would love to be able to look around and find some roses this time of year! Yours are divine! Alas, our hungry deer have finished off all the buds. They seem so sweet and so very hungry….I cant blame them.

      I had heard that deer love roses Jayne, but so far, thank goodness they seem to stay clear of our garden, though I have seen them on the field next door and once I saw their footprints on the drive in the snow!

    I was wondering why your roses didn’t jump out at you the first time, Pauline?! Isn’t it lovely to still have a few of theur blooms so late in the year? I haven’t had a good crop of blooms on my Pilgrim since I move it about 3 or 4 years ago and am hoping it forgives me soon!

    • Pauline says:

      All the roses shown Cathy arein different borders, strangely Ballerina is the only one flowering in the rose garden! I think The Pilgrim enjoyed being flooded last winter, it has never been so good before.

    What gorgeous roses. Our oak tree has no acorns this year. A few other UK bloggers have mentioned this too. How odd.
