Scharlachglut Roses

 
 
It's cold in New Brunswick.  Not as cold as it will be later in the winter, but cold enough.  The daytime temperatures are just above the freezing point; night times are just below.  Yet look at what continues to form new buds, to burst into bloom, in the front garden.  Amazing hardiness!  Such determined gifts of loveliness, in a landscape that is turning to the greys of November.

I was amazed to see the roses still forming buds and persistently blooming despite the colder nights. It was a surprise and a delight.
