December Roses

It has been rainy and cold for the last week, so decided to try and brighten things up with some pictures of December roses.

All of the pictures here in this post were taken earlier this month. However, after freezing weather last night I don’t think I will have anymore new blooms this year. It is time to get ready to prune 🙂

December Roses, California seasonsJust two short weeks ago my rose bushes were full of open blooms and there were still leaves in the trees. Now after several rounds of rain the trees are completely bare.

I must enjoy my rose blooms while I can. The pruning is imminent.
