Your roses look lovely even with that dreaded white stuff on them. It's sad for the season to end...

Paul:
As spectacular and prolific as your roses always are, they're probably exhausted by now and ready for their winter nap !

Paul - I know.. depressing isn't it. Some of my roses were trying to put out some last blooms when we got hit too. Didn't even bother taking pictures, was so depressed. :(

I have many roses that were trying to bloom also. It's 32 degrees tonight and on Monday it's suppose to go up to 70 degrees. What a roller coaster ride for all these plants.

We are getting the same wild temperature swings here; the roses actually seem to love it!

Our roses are freeze-dried, leaves and all. Even the trees were caught by surprise by the extreme plunge. Looks like we'll have dried green leaves on everything until spring! The blossoms turned black!
The lilac buds don't look too good. I don't think our plants are loving our 75 degree swings because the plunge came before most plants were even thinking about shutting down. On top of that, the soil is still way too dry.
Last week when it warmed up for a day, I watered evergreens and roses. One of my best hoses split already. I was just sure I had it totally drained. Angry
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Cindi - welcome to what I get every year. It's so depressing yet so beautiful to see the freeze-dried roses. Your lilacs will be fine. Mine are just hunky dory even with the extreme that we had a few weeks ago (went from 60s to below zero in 1 day for a few days). We have another cold front hitting us right now. It's a mild one and not very wet, so we won't get any moisture out of this one unfortunately. :(
