November roses

 November is a beautiful time for roses, I shared a few on display in the Ferguson Valley Open Gardens a couple of weeks ago - Ferguson Valley Open Gardens
and they are beautiful in my garden too. So I thought for today I would share a few for you to enjoy. 

And a beautiful red rose bouquet for my friend's wedding, made by a mutual friend. Glorious.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Just a short post from me today, few words, just flowers to enjoy. I value your comments and look forward to hearing from you. I will try to visit your blogs in return. Have a wonderful week.

  1. Hello, so many beautiful and colorful roses. Lovely images and post. Enjoy your day and week ahead.

  2. Lovely photos, and especially pretty as we approach winter.
    Thanks for linking up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2018/11/preparing-for-winter.html

  3. Beautiful roses! I've inherited the care of the Mama's roses. Lately, I think about adding more rose bushes. Seeing your photos, I'm almost ready to commit.

  4. Red roses are my favorite! WOW! That bouquet is gorgeous! Enjoy your week!

  5. I thoroughly enjoyed these beautiful roses - one of my favourite flowers. The bouquet is stunning. It's always lovely in the garden when the roses bloom. Since we're on the opposite season, your flowers remind me that mine will return in the spring.

  6. Jill - in my mind, I can smell these roses. Especially when I got to the red ones - that deep, velvety, luxurious aroma that only roses can deliver. Thank you for this gift on another cold day in Montana. And a delicious subject for mosaics - I am sure all the readers enjoyed these pictures and their spot in Mosaic Monday!

  7. Oh sigh, your roses are gorgeous. Afraid those of ours that didn't get turned to a crisp in that Mediterranean sun of the summer where blasted to smithereens with our two recent storms. The blooms that were struggling to emerge . . .were broken on their stems. Oh sigh. . .it has been a rough garden year. Keep your photos coming!!

  8. Oh and a PS comment, as I scrolled down your blog, I noticed your beautiful art that won an Emerging Artist award in May. Where have I been? I never noticed it until today and it is absolutely. stunning. my talented friend!!

  9. No roses anymore in Finland now! So we will be happy with yours.

  10. Would you believe Jill that one of my Knock Out Roses was still blooming last week before our ice storm hit on Tuesday. These roses are all so glorious and I can imagine the lovely fragrances coming from each. Hugs~

    Hello Jill,

    A beautiful gallery of roses:) Never can get enough of these.
    Have painted several of them. The roses are for you blooming in late Spring,
    while here in California they are still blooming deep in Fall.
    Am so thankful for being able to enjoy their beauty this long.
    Thank you for being a part of All Seasons, Jill. You have always interesting posts:)
    Have a great week, Jesh(Junieper)

    1. actually we have them flowering on until the end of autumn (fall) here too. They really are a lovely plant to have in the garden.

  12. Just beautiful. I can never look at (or smell) enough roses...

  13. Your pictures are a visual feast!

  14. I love roses. They would have to be my favourite flower. Their perfume is divine. #TeamLovinLife

  15. So beautiful. Great pics. Thanks for sharing them. #lovinlifelinky

  16. Oh I loved the summery post! Lovely contrast to our mostly brown leaves and rainy sky this morning. And these roses are stunning!
