These flower started blooming this morning in the fog. They were white. I noticed at 4 PM after the sun came out that they had begin to turn light pink.

This one started out pale pink, then fuschia, then dark pink. The freeze killed it. It was nearly as tall as our second story before it froze.

The last hurrah for the Confederate Rose. Since the oak limb blocked the sun this summer, it's leaning to catch the afternoon sun rays. It's in front of a 5' wall.
