All-Rose Bloom Day


In our climate, October often produces the prettiest roses of the year.  This year owing to a hot October, the roses waited until now.

  1. Gorgeous roses dear Hoover, the colours, the flower shape, the fragrance must be wonderful, a beautiful dahlia also.
    xoxoxo ♡

  2. Very nice to see your roses doing so well.

    1. Thank you, Kris, and happy GBBD back atcha!

  4. Such a marveolus range of roses! Fantastic. I can almost feel the wonderful scent. Great captures!

    1. Thank you! The fragrance is often the best part.

  5. Your roses are beautiful. Roses here are looking like the 'last rose of summer.'

    1. Thank you Jean. There are a few weather-battered ones here also, but somehow the camera skipped those. ;^)

  6. Thanks for sharing your beautiful roses. I love that so many different climates are represented on GBBD, it means we in the frozen North can see roses from you folks down in California.

    1. I also enjoy the wide range of climates/plants for GBBD. We can envy other climates, and appreciate our own, all at once! Glad you liked the roses, Alison. I just got an Aloe glauca after admiring your greenhouse version.

  7. OMG those are beautiful. Your Evelyn is breathtaking.

    1. Thank you, Forest! You have some beautiful roses of your own (at least before the freeze).

  8. I don't grow many roses, but we have close to 3000 at work, and they have been looking great for the past month. After 25 degrees on Thursday, they me be ready for their winter sleep. Happy GBBD!

    1. Happy GBBD, Les-who-takes-the-beautiful-photos!
