Upside Down Weather


I thought with the hard freeze we had a couple of weeks back that that was the end of the growing season. Obviously not. The last week with its temperatures in the 70's coaxed one last bloom out of the Clotilde Soupert, the antique rose bush from Texas. I see over at 66 Square Feet, that the warm weather is doing the same to spring-blooming camellias up in Brooklyn.

Wonder what the spring will look like if this up-and-down weather continues . . .

Gorgeous rose, looks like it's made of superthin paper. Beautiful colour.

What a beautiful rose - our climbing rose still has a few blooms hanging on, despite the recent wind and rain.

Nice rose it is

Anyes: Frost for us today and the weather forecasters say back to normal. So long to the rose.

Carolina: It is, isn't it? Its antecedents are French to Texas in the 1840's.

Anne: Pictures, pictures! That would be a wonderful use of your new macro lens.

Chantal: Merci!
