Today is Saturday, and that means "Macro Flowers Saturday."
It's nearing mid-October, so I find it unusual that one of my potted rose bushes has 7 buds on it. After all, it's fall, and we've had some recent night temperatures in the 30's. But my roses are protected on my back porch--where they've been all spring and summer-- because the deer love to eat them. It was exciting to see the rose buds and to anticipate another blooming. It's a lavender floribunda variety of rose. ( The water drops were extra! You can see them more clearly by clicking the photo.)
