More November gardening advice...


... remember to enjoy the last of your flowers!!! Can you believe I picked this bouquet of roses yesterday? With the exception of a few "Love" tea roses, all of these beautiful blooms came off of a wonderful floribunda bush I have in my front yard. I can't remember why I picked a white rose, as usually like more vibrant colors, but I'm glad I did. The bush is large and vigorous, it blooms numerous times a year, and when it does it is covered with clusters of flowers ranging from lily white to a gorgeous blush pink. The strange warm weather we've had this fall has brought out it's best; despite the fact that it mid November, this bush is covered in blooms and buds. What a treat it is to to be able to pick a November garden bouquet!!

Absolutely lovely pic, Linda. We've still got a few colorful blooms hanging on but it won't be long.

Gorgeous blooms! I had one last rose left at the end of October, but since then, just about everything in the yard is clicking into "winter" mode!

Haven't you had a frost yet? We had a few lingering roses until a couple of weeks ago.
Those are gorgeous!
