Late Summer Roses

The nights have been clear and crispy walking Zoe under the almost full moon; while the days start off cool and foggy before becoming piercingly clear and warm. It's so beautiful, this time of year. The David Austin roses have started their final flush. Their colour is richer with the cooler weather and the scent, mixed in phlox and hydrangeas whispers in my ear 'It's almost over". I let all the roses form hips now; no more deadheading, and as I was walking about noticed my Heritage Rose had just lost her petals.  Took these shots of her. You have to admit she is quite the drama queen.
