TODAY'S FLOWERS - Winter Roses

I have always been fascinated by flowers out of season

I found this surprise a couple of days ago
when I went to look wether my 'Princess de Monaco'
had survived the summer. 
It had and it made me glad but behind it 
A lovely rambler had decided to give me a present or two . . .

a little ground-cover rose that the sheep had demolished,
had brought forth this brilliant red,
somewhat snail damaged, beauty

After the early Saturday marked in Angaston,
the dog and I take our accustomed stroll around 
the town and were greeted by this beautiful ,
rain-drenched pot of gold.

What is blooming up your way
or anywhere else?

  1. Hi Airja What a lovely surprise for you and a wonderful vibrant red Rose. I love raindrops on flowers. Have a great weekend. Margaret

  2. Love the roses. And the pot of gold is a true gem. I have some astroemeria blooming valiantly, a cyclamen, some daisies and lots and lots of bulbs coming through. And some (the paper whites I think) have flower spikes. An exciting time. Oh, and a plant I hope you can identify for me tomorrow.

  3. My roses are just coming into bloom Arija. I love them too. Albertine has her first flower. She has permanent blackspot and the garden centre suggested i threw her out as it is almost impossible to eradicate it on Albertine - but she is my favourite, so I fight a losing battle to keep it at bay.

  4. I also enjoy flowers out of season. These are beauties.

  5. Ganz fantastische Bilder liebe Freundin...

  13. I do love that lovely blousey pink rose in the top pic Arija ... I must take a closer look around my garden and see what beauties are hiding there.

  14. You should see the roses at the city house, Arija. I cut a big bouquet of them, mostly yellow and peach for the kitchen table. That pink is glowing in the light.

  15. Your winter flowers are just lovely!
