Roses Blooming on Nov. 27th

Not that I’m complaining…

Hope everyone was able to take advantage of the ridiculously awesome weather this weekend.

  • I noticed some apparently-confused trees in the neighborhood over the weekend that appeared to be getting ready to bloom.

  • I love your photos. I have three roses still hanging in there as well. They look so vibrant against the rest of the fading garden and yard. Every time I see it, I’m reminded of the opening scene of Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter:

    “A throng of bearded men, in sad-colored garments and gray, steeple-crowned hats, intermixed with women, some wearing hoods, and others bareheaded, was assembled in front of a wooden edifice, the door of which was heavily timbered with oak, and studded with iron spikes…Before this ugly edifice, and between it and the wheel-track of the street, was a … wild rose-bush, covered, in this month of June, with its delicate gems, which might be imagined to offer their fragrance and fragile beauty to the prisoner as he went in, and to the condemned criminal as he came forth to his doom, in token that the deep heart of Nature could pity and be kind to him.

    This rose-bush, by a strange chance, has been kept alive in history; but whether it had merely survived out of the stern old wilderness, so long after the fall of the gigantic pines and oaks that originally overshadowed it,–or whether, as there is fair authority for believing, it had sprung up under the footsteps of the sainted Ann Hutchinson, as she entered the prison-door,–we shall not take upon us to determine.”

  • My zinnias are still blooming!

  • Roses bloom year-round here unless there is a devastating sudden freeze. And if the temps stay this warm, we will have cherry blossoms in December (which is not good because it uses some of the trees’strength and diminishes their blooming in April.)

  • Isn’t that Chez PoP in the background (blue house)?
