Today's Flowers: Looking back at Past Roses

Now that the last of my roses has dropped to the ground, I thought I'd look back at old photographs not posted yet.

Photobucket

The first shot is of my first roses to bloom each year and the first to stop blooming. That shot was taken in early May of 2009 and the red roses are in front of my raised beds which are in front of my greenhouse. My greenhouse is attached to my green storage building.

Photobucket

The rest of the rose shots are my Sutters' Gold which bloom in front of the storeage building, starting sometime in June and finishing up in the Autumn. I have been posting them a lot lately because until recently they continued while others were already done for the year.

Photobucket

These rose shots were taken in October of 2009. The last of this variety of roses finally dropped it's petals this week.

I like the way these rose are so diverse. They look quite different from each other as well as change a lot as the bloom opens and matures.

Photobucket

I have four other varieties of roses which I have posted in the past, and have other shots not yet posted which I may use in future posts because winter will limit my choices for current Today's Flowers shots.
