Bloom Day November--Yes, November--2012
November? Really? With Iris?
And Delphinium? (Delphinium!?!)
And Clematis? November?!?
Yes! All taken November 14, 2012. The roses are expected. The others are a slight surprise.
The roses are having a fabulous November, which is one of the best months for roses here. The warm days and cool nights make colors deep and rich, and the flower size large.

'Kaiserin Auguste Viktoria':
This Mantis on 'Bishops Castle' was stretching her "arms" towards the sun. Enjoying the last warmth of autumn?
'Petal Pusher'. Fine rose, silly name:
'Fourth Of July':
Many thanks, as always, to May Dreams garden blog (link) for hosting Bloom Day.
I hope your Bloom Day is beautiful! To close, Tagetes lemonii, in golden glory. Yes, that's one plant. The blooming Aloe in the foreground is 'Cynthia Gitty':
