Autumn Roses

Here is a tenacious post-frost, near-November rose bloom.  This bush died away many years ago but resurrected itself during the spring of the year that followed the death of my Mother.  It has bloomed every year since then.  Usually the blooms from this bush are finished for the year around August.  Seeing this late season blossom gave me a bit of cheer.

Below are some of my cold-tolerant “Double Knockout Roses.”   These bushes seem to bloom in clusters every 4 – 6 weeks or so from June until a hard freeze in the fall ends their season.
