This afternoon I did some yard work, so thought I would share some late October roses.
I took this picture before I got started with the yard work. You can definitely see that I needed to mow. Especially after the heavy rain last week.
This next rose is on my Mister Lincoln rose bush. I am still getting nice large blooms that are very fragrant.
Unfortunately they do not last too long and are soon losing their petals.
The rose bush is a little shorter this year. It didn’t make it up into the eaves like it has in the past years.
I still have a lot of yellow roses on my bushes. Do you see the rose petals on the freshly mown grass? These are the petals from the rose in the first picture. They were all knocked off when I was trimming the grass around the bush.
I will probably have roses for another two months so have a lot more to enjoy this year.
