Last Roses

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 12 September 2011 in Plant & Nature.

The evenings are getting quite crisp and the flowers are showing signs of an impending fall. These two roses are some of the last, but still look very pretty. I thought some color would be nice for a Monday.

You are lucky to have such a big garden just outside! (The fall is NOT here yet!)
