Last Rose, November

We still have one lone rose in the garden. It's wilting now, but I took this picture a couple of days ago. (I added a vignette in Adobe's Camera Raw.)

I think it survived November's frosts because it is sheltered by the house. Also, the heat from our dryer vent may help!


  1. We haven't had a flower left here in a month at least... maybe more. It has been pretty cold here. You are lucky to have a rose so late in the year. Beautiful.

  2. The last sign of summer. Now it makes the coming of winter more real.

  3. I love the colors in it--such a pretty photo!

  4. The dryer heat would definitely help!

    It looks lovely.

  5. How beautiful - I*m amazed by how roses can survive!

  6. Love the colour and your picture!!
    Very lovely indeed.

  7. Your rose is beautiful!
    Greetings, RW & SK
