Last October Roses

 Last week up at the cottage I did a marathon garden clean up. But before I started I picked the last of  the fall roses. Fall roses are a little more raggedy than mid summer roses but certainly just as sweet.



Notice my tricky photography…. I managed to keep myself out of the mirror and captured the bouquet of hydrangeas on the back wall. Sometimes you just get lucky!










I love this vintage tea set, no longer usable but still so pretty.


This is the arrangement you see peaking thru in the mirror. I'm always amazed at the color of the hydrangeas. These will slowly dry over the winter and the bright colors will fade.







Halloween today and it is dreary and rainy here, I hope it clears up for the kiddies tonight.

Happy Halloween!

Your roses look perfect to me! And your hydrangeas are so vibrant!

It's raining here, too, so we didn't see too many ghosts and goblins tonight.

Happy Halloween!

They are gorgeous, Laura. I can practically smell them from here! And those hydrangeas may be the loveliest I've ever seen.

Your roses and your hydrangeas are gorgeous! I have never seen the fuchsia pink hydrangea before. Do you know the name of the cultivar?

What lovely roses and hydrangeas, Laura. I like the arrangement beside the roses too. I forget what they are called but my friend used to have them in her arrangements. The tea set is nice too. There's just something charming about old silver. Lovely post and thank you for sharing it with us.

Blessings,
Sandi

Oh so lovely roses.

My rose bushes never produce many flowers at one time. I think my New Year's resolution will be to become a better rose gardener.

The roses and hydrangeas are so beautiful. I love how you can see the back of the bouquet of roses in the mirror. The colors are so wonderful with your white furniture.
