Well, as I type this, it's snowing. We got only a dusting for now, and we're in an eye of a storm, but looks to be another wave coming through. We're not going to get any real accumulation from this, and I'm not complaining as it's free moisture, but I had a lot of beautiful buds ready to open and they're now all toast. I took pictures last night of my unfulfilled promises.

Oh look, a vegetative center on a rose. I usually see those more on the OGRs.
The one lower down in the picture is an even better example.

I have no idea on what it is.. I've never seen anything like it before. What's a vegetative center? The rose does have standard hips, too.

It's a leafy growth in the center, not caused by disease or bugs. It won't spread to your other roses. Some roses are more prone to it than others. Backing off on the fertilizer helps reduce it in some cases. I had the worst case of it when I put a lot of horse manure under the large once blooming OGRS.

Thanks for the rose parade Toni. It gives me hope for next year. Maybe I'll be able to win the battle with deer by then. I have one blossom from Rainbow Sorbet. And one from Rise 'n' Shine. But nothing photogenic.

I'm holding my breath about the weather, too. Frost cut my dahlias to the ground last night, but within the last week or so most of the roses have been making new leaves like it will never go out of style. For the foreseeable future - i.e. the next ten nights - there will be no frost, and the daily highs will be around 76F. So the roses here will be happy. But I realize I need to start spraying them with rose antifreeze this week.

And the ski season has officially started on Saturday

http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_19081099

The ski season in Colorado officially began Saturday. Thumb of 2011-10-10/Skiekitty/f64dca

It was announced not with the din of snow-making machines pasting a path of man-made snow between dirt and rocks, but the distant whoops of avalanche-control bombs. And accompanied by heaps of powder.

Saturday, 1,500 skiers and snowboarders from across the region converged on remote Wolf Creek Ski Area, four hours from Colorado Springs, for the most memorable ski season opening in recent memory.

Every year, the Interstate 70-corridor ski areas Loveland and Arapahoe Basin​ compete to make enough snow for an 18-inch base on one or two ski runs to open first. But as both were firing up snow guns for the first time Thursday, an autumn storm was dumping 3 feet of snow on Wolf Creek, in the San Juan Mountains​ of southern Colorado.
