More December roses

gardennatlanta(z7atlantaGA)December 5, 2010

I just went out in my garden and found some beautiful blooms even though it has been really cold (30s) and rainy the last few days.

Here is one of SdLM--most of the other blooms have balled : (

Quietness has a couple of beautiful blooms. Here is one.

And White Ma Perkins is showing some cream coloring, I guess from the cold.

Anyway, thought I'd share. Hope you are all having a good December and not getting too stressed.

Wow! Those are really nice for this time of yr and with temps that low! We've had temps almost that low off and on the last week or so, plus rain too. I still have buds trying to pop, and BILL WARRINER and LOIS WILSON are actually still blooming. Suns out now... I should go see how things are, but it's still COLD!

Lovely blooms you still have, gardenatlanta! The Souvernir de la Malmaison flower is soooo... pretty it is almost hard to bear. I lost mine due to an animal attack, but seeing yours makes me really want to try it again.

Thanks for posting!

Roses in December help us to forget the sweltering summer! What other flowering shrubs bloom so long? None - and that is one reason we love roses!! Yours are just lovely. QUIETNESS is one of my favorites. It must be one of Dr. Buck's best ones.
