Though we had already experienced a hard freeze, a beautiful fall season was continuing into early November. A hearty lot, our miniature roses was making it through the cool evenings and early frosts. It would be a matter of time before they, too, would yield to the change of season.
Days after this photo was taken, we had our first snow of the 2014-15 winter season. It was also accompanied by the first round of bitter cold temperatures.
Our roses are beginning to green up now, waking from their winter slumber. They’ll produce their first blooms in late May and early June.
