December Rose

Tonight I decided to post a few pictures of one of my December roses.

Mister Lincoln, Rose Bush, december rose, rose budI took this picture several days ago and wondered if it would end up blooming. The weather has been pretty cold at night and I thought maybe the season for roses was about over.

It is actually nice that it is not too warm as the rose petals are really keeping their shape. Also, I haven’t seen any busy little insects on the bloom.

I like this as you can also see the difference between the shadowy underside and the top of the petals. There was not much light this morning as it was really foggy, but enough light was there to light up the rose a bit.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of this beautiful Mister Lincoln rose.
