Fall Rose Bouquet

 It's official now...
Indian Summer!!
Before we had our first killing frost last Friday, I went out to cut my mini roses for a bouquet.
My mom just loved them!
My plants come from the grocery store and I buy them when they are around $3--$5. They are very hardy and bloom well when I fertilize them. I'll be missing them during the drab days of winter.

I've missed my 'last rose of summer' this year. Usually, we have one last burst of blooms, but it isn't going to happen this year for some reason. Yours sure are pretty. Sally

We still have them in N. NV, but everything is starting to look a little wimpy. Your roses are lovely.
How is the kitchen coming?!

Marilyn, The roses are so beautiful.
I love them as well. Do you ever let them dry out and have potpourri?

Love the different colors!

I can't grow roses. Heck...I can't grow anything. I'm a rose-plant-grass-shrub-tree KILLER!

LOVE YOUR ROSES. Oozing jealousy here.

Love you~Rebecca

Your green thumb is amazing! The roses are so lovely. We have a rose bush and it is in a place I would never plant roses but that crazy thing grows like mad and blossoms and then in the fall the leaves turn a deep ruby red! I need your green thumb! I have two philodendrons at work! They are glorious! But no one there appreciates them so I am bringing them home. Our cat might give them a fit but I may send them to my daughters, two doors down, as she only has large dogs and no cats! Plus she has a pretty china hutch and it faces the full sunlight. I think those plants like the artificial light at work! Hmmm....
You are the plant queen Marilyn! Such a terrific gardener!
