Welcoming Autumn

We're having absolutely beautiful weather at the moment, I've been enjoying being outdoors so much.

Some roses are showing much larger blooms with more intense colours, I think they love the Autumn as well. Some of them are putting out long canes and having growth spurt, so I'd better make it snappy to go and give them a trim to keep them tidy so they'll give me more flowers rather than looking like octopuses with no flowers. Have a lovely day, won't you?

Hi Rosy,

the roses are beautiful and again the beautiful weather, it can hardly believe it. With us, it is 5 degrees and the snow has just thawed. I have the first pictures of spring flowers and Easter decoration made. I hope we will soon be warmer.

Enjoy your beautiful garden, lovely greetings Melontha

Hi Rosie, They are all beautiful roses and great photography. I remember how much we enjoyed our own roses last September, which is equivelant to your time of the year now and how true the colours are always so much more vivid. I wrote a response to your last post last evening and sometimes late at night I do not pay too much attention as I somehow do not complete the upload. Anyway, I will repeat again how I loved those plaques of the cups and sauces such a pretty design on them, I was wondering how you would end up displaying them in your home. I am sure, you will do it just right! :) Enjoyed the rest of the pictures there too. Thanks for sharing.

Just beautiful.
I was away for a few days and came home to a garden filled with rose blooms. I am currently watering everyone to reward their beauty.

Stunning. I am going to be planting my first plant on my husbands first day off. A gift, lilac tree, and i'm so excited. Your roses are stunning. I will be selecting some of those very soon as well. Pink if you please.. soft pink!

Oh, I am in heaven again! I got my daily fill of your beautiful roses! How I wish we could grow English roses as splendidly as you.

I adore all your pink roses. Thank you for sharing.

It's magic to stop by your blog. You make me dream. I love roses particularly the old ones.o:)

Hi I love your roses and the photography I must upload some of mine onto my blog. I will be back for more. I tend to go for the paler pink roses and had to be firm with myself recently and when there was no Mary rose which I was looking to buy in memory of a dear friend, i decided on Falstaff it has such a deep colour so will contrast nicely. I too am a lover of David Austin English roses.

How beautiful the roses are. Autumn is such a wonderful time - cool crisp mornings followed by wonderful afternoons
