Ethereal and delicately pale; this last rose of Autumn.
My daughter’s floribunda rose bush has continually produced pink blooms since the start of Spring, six months ago.
This is what it looked like then, in October last year.
I thought it interesting that these two photos, taken so far apart, were so similar; the position of the rose and buds being almost identical.
Although my Autumn rose is a little faded now, all it needs is dead-heading one last time before it has a little siesta.
Then it will be back in business for its winter blooming!
