Nature is sometimes strange, huh? Lovely photos. Have a great day, hugs, Valerie
Indeed it is. I love still seeing my roses, but it is a little freaky.Hugs back,
Such beautiful flowers! It never snows where I live, so for me, it doesn't seem strange to see them and Christmas decorations together, LOL.
Where are you located at, Heather?
Born and raised in the southwest! :P
What lovely blooms Sandra.Yvonne.
Thank you, Yvonne.
It does seem incongruous to me the roses should be asleep when the Christmas decorations are out. We still have fuchsias flowering in our back garden, which is crazy. The frost usually kills them off at the end of November. At this moment in time, they are more likely to drown than freeze. We have had non stop rain for two days and nights, lots of floods in the area and our poor garden is a soggy mess.
Non stop rain for 2 days! Yikes!We're dry as a bone here.Where's the happy medium?
Nothing to do with global warming though.
Not a thing...cough cough.
I wouldn't be complaining if the roses were still in bloom. Yesterday's temps dipped below freezing with a windchill that made it feel like temps were in the teens. Brrrrr. Is it July, yet?
Come south, young woman, come south:)
Nice to still have the bloom, we finally had to give in to frosts
Ah well, at least we had an extended Indian Summer.
They just want to be festive and cheery too
Exactly! Nothing wrong with that:) Just a little out of character....
The weather is really different this year. Late in coming here too.
It sure is, Donna!
LOL Missed the roses at first. I still have a couple flowers blooming in my garden despite the recent frost.
I don't remember an Indian summer lasting this long do you?
Do you live in Michigan too?! Well, our roses became a dead deal over the weekend but till then they were out as well! Here's hoping our global climate gets its act together (though I have to say, I loved the extended fall!)
Michigan is way too cold for me:) Though, we did live many years in WI.Yes, the extended fall has been nice and it's giving us a chance to winterize the porch.
It has been such an up and down autumn. I'm not sure we'll ever turn the page to winter, but when it comes, it will more than likely be a monster.
I'm afraid you're right about a monster winter. My thoughts: everyday like this that goes by lessens the length of winter and brings us closer to spring.
Your roses are beautiful. I have decorated for Christmas, too. My roses aren't blooming, but they will probably bloom again by Christmas. It's seventy degrees. What a gorgeous day.Love,Janie
It's amazing isn't it, Janie?
People keep posting they put their trees up in early November and such. If I speak up and say I prefer to keep Christmas to December, I'm told I'm just not as "into Christmas" as the person who celebrates it for months. I love Christmas! I just like to wait until after Thanksgiving, but that appears to be becoming NOT the norm.
Whatever works for you works for me:)Once Halloween is out of the way, I'm good to go:)
Winter is well and truly settling in in my part of Germany. Nothing blooming, the trees have all shed their leaves and snow is falling on the higher ground.
ps: Thanks for checking in on my rewrite progress, Sandra. Gave me a boost and it's moving along nicely :)
Snow....brrrr.So glad to hear your rewriting is flowing smoothly.
I knew right away! Our flowers are blooming as well and we have had frost! Amazing isn't it. I do love your little Christmas scene. At least it is cold out....more in keeping with November weather which I prefer
It is amazing!
well, we waz gonna refrunce de burdz on de lamp post... sew guess itz a good thing we dinna say sew... then bee em bear azzed ~~~ ♥♥♥☺☺☺
There are many flowers surviving during this time of year. Burr
They're hardier than I am:)
My Jasmine just did the same thing. Just lit up with hundreds of little white flowers. I'm sitting here going 'aren't you cold, dude?'
Well ... it all makes for a most interesting mix!All the best Jan
Christmas is looming all to quickly!!
I think this year for us, will be the same as last year. We had a green Christmas last year and I think it will be the same for us this year. Although, we have some snow now, but we are suppose to be warming up to Spring like temperatures for the weekend! No blooms here! That is weird!!! Nature is screwed up! Can you blame it???Big Hugs! (I love your Christmas set up! So cute!)
