Fall Roses

On Saturday I visited the Community Rose Garden after stopping by the library to drop of some books.

I was surprised to finds some nice looking blooms on a few of the rose bushes.

These remind me that I need to do some work with my own rose bushes. They need to be cleaned up a bit so I can enjoy my fall roses better.
