November Roses



There's something breathtaking about roses in late autumn. 
Perhaps it's a last exhalation of summer or perhaps it's the beautiful contrast of pink against the fading green landscape. I breathe them in deeply as I want to remember them after the cool dark skies settle in for the season.

Hello Trina

A late rose is such a wondrous gift of summer memories. I can almost smell their fragrance in your gorgeous photograph.

These roses are heavenly! I have once read a poem and I try to translate it into English:
"Roses bloom in summertime so that we can remember their scent when winter falls."
I have never written it down but somehow I preserved the words deep down in my heart. xxx Christa

Our roses are done but we still have hydrangeas. Slowly turning from blue to purple to brown...

Beyond beautiful

Carissa @ Pretty/Hungry said...

Every garden post you do amazes me! I wish I could spend a day at the farmhouse learning your secrets because I've just wound down my first year of my own garden and it was so-so. I harvested some delicious vegetables but certainly nothing straight out of Eden like these!! :)
My best to you and your precious family!

Kristin said...

Well said... I love these late lingering bloomers! We had an October snow here in Eastern PA. It was really something seeing the roses covered in white!

Candylei said...

Tedra said...

Those are beautiful :) I love roses, especially David Austin roses.

Karen said...

I do always enjoy what may seem to you like idle musings lol but your beautiful home and your beautiful family help us wee bloggers to appreciate the beauty in the simple things :-) Your roses are divine, as are your other glorious garden flowers. These roses, I must say, look quite similar in shape to a Pierre de Ronsard standard weeper we have in our garden. By the way, I was telling a friend about the picture of your hubby holding all those ladybirds! Spent almost 2hrs hunting for it on your site...obviously missed it. Where can I find it?

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

I am awaiting my David Austin Roses to arrived--not so patiently I may add. I love to paint roses and I can't wait to paint the ones I ordered. :)How long did it take for them to bloom for you? And what variety is shown on your photos? I just wondered by your blog and I LOVE it!

A Country Farmhouse said...

Hi Caroline,
So far I've planted the varieties Geoff Hamilton, Windemere, Glamis Castle and Heritage by David Austin. I think the variety in this photo is Heritage.
They bloom the first year but the flowers are small. By the second year they should be a nice size.
Happy roses to you!
Trina

Carolina Elizabeth said...

Thank you, Trina. That is great news. I can't wait to paint them. I have some that will be arriving soon--hopefully not too early for Oklahoma bursts of surprise weather. I hope you have many things to be excited about this Spring. I wish you a happy one. Carolina Elizabeth
