The other day Zeeland, the province I live in, has had a little frost. Not much, only 2 degrees below zero at night.
Before the frost, I picked a variety of roses from my garden. I put these to an old sauceboat to enjoy the roses for the last time this year. I was pretty sure the frost would have ended the flowering season for the roses. How wrong I was!
A little stroll around the garden still provides me enough blooming roses to make a blog post. Do not expect too much from these roses though. But as you all will know, garden happiness is to be found in little things!
In the back yard, flowering at the rose arches, some roses of R. Blush Noisette’ and R. ‘Mme Alfred Carrière’. I also see a branch of R. ‘Tapis Volent’ with several flowers on it.
In the front yard, I have discovered single roses to R. 'The Pilgrim', R. 'Windrush' R. 'Celina' and R. 'Golden Border'. This last one is always the first in flowering and continues until the very end. It is an unsurpassed rose in a soft yellow colour.
Maybe these December roses are not the prettiest, but I must admit, they are certainly the bravest!
