There is no last rose of summer any more. There might be a last rose of late winter at some point, I suppose, but this is, these days, a late summer or autumn flower. If not a winter one.
Certainly here it is, November tomorrow, and my garden is full of roses.
An unidentified miniature patio rose growing in the kids' garden.
A budding Rosa 'Dublin Bay'
Lots of buds on my container-grown Rosa 'Wildeve'
I just can't make my mind up if I like it.
