Late Roses

mouse-over for before view. These are almost the last roses of the season and what a wonderful summer and autumn it's been here too with sunny days, mild temperatures and not as much rain as usual. Winter has arrived today though as has the rain! Roll on spring! This...

Thought it was time for some more roses to brighten up the blog pages. These are my old favourites Cecile Brunner which are looking particularly beautiful in the garden at the moment, I simply added an old open book et voila!
