November is National Sleep Comfort Month, so the thumbnail for this month is Sweet Dream, a wonderful Fryer floribunda.



This is the month when many of us will be receiving our roses for next season. I'm expecting roses from Freedom Gardens, Palatine, and Burlington this month. I'm also looking at the new offerings from Northland Rosarium and Edmunds' Roses with interest and wondering whether I should order something from them.

In the meantime, I'm still doing some fall cleanup chores and looking forward to December, when I can start my pruning in earnest. I don't prune all of my roses, but some have grown to such gigantic proportions that they have to be cut back for their own good and for the good of anyone trying to walk through the garden unscathed.

Ah, a beautiful picture of Sweet Dreams. Unfortunately, I am awake rather than sleeping at the moment....I will stare at it some more and see if it helps. Smiling

I can't sleep either. Meh.

I hope you did manage to get some sleep, Nuts.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

I can't sleep either because I was looking at a receipt from Annie's Annuals and remembered that I had planted a new Passiflora somewhere in my garden about a month ago. Now I can't remember where it is and I'm hoping it's in a spot I've been watering regularly. I've been trying to visualize all of my arbors and trellises, hoping to jog my memory, because it's too late and too dark to go outside and look for the plant.

My garden is shutting down.

Actually, I am looking forward to that. I need some down time.

Just walked all the way around the garden numerous times, checking all the fences and dozens of pergolas, trellises, arbors, gazebos, and even some large containers next to climbers and trees. Can't find that Passiflora.

The first time I planted it, some subterranean creature pushed the little plant right out of the ground that night. I saw it the next day before any permanent damage had been done and I replanted it, but where?

Mustbnuts - you asked a few days ago whether Mme Alfred Carriere was fragrant and I said she was if you put your nose right in her but that the fragrance doesn't waft. I was wrong. My hayfever must have stuffed up my olfactory senses because according to every source I have come across she is very fragrant and disease resistant. Lola.

Yesterday was such a nice autumn day today that I decided to hobble through the garden, something I haven't done since I broke my foot last month, backing up from that bear at my window. I'm still on crutches for four more weeks, but I still managed to cut a bouquet of roses, hydrangeas, straw flowers, turtle heads blossoms, and cone flower seed heads. Probably the last bouquet of the season.

So it's a good thing that the bed was already downstairs for the dog's sake?

Beautiful bouquet.

I have one rose blooming at the moment and that's my Souvenir De Baden Baden. She has one bloom on her and it smells good.

We haven't had a true hard freeze yet so everything is still mostly green around here.

I walked out the back door amid raindrops this morning, and my White Licorice tried to grab me. I planted it in June and it has done amazingly. I put a trellice by her to discourage crawling up the back porch. Maybe she wants to be a climber. My Rosie the Riveter hasn't done as well but had heartbreakingly beautiful little blooms. Had our first freeze and they just won't give up!

You put it somewhere really clever because you were hiding it from subterranean creatures; hopefully it will be obvious at some point and you'll find it Crossing Fingers! or, maybe you didn't actually hide it very well and they unplanted it again and someone ran off with it Shrug!

I got a couple of splendid and spendy rings in NM a few years ago and put them somewhere really special for safe keeping D'Oh! I'm quite certain they are still there, where ever that is Hilarious!

Compassion, the Harkness climber:

Distant Drums, a Buck shrub, its colors subdued for fall:

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/a91418

Funny Face, one of Ping Lim's shrubs:

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/156514

Gilbert Becaud, a Meilland hybrid tea:

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/6885a5

Golden Unicorn, another Buck shrub. The bloom's played out, so consider this a glamour shot of the stamens.

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/33bc50

Helen Hayes, a Brownell hybrid tea. This one's a perpetual blooming machine. It's very rare not to see some blooms on it.

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/e56b06

Magenta, an old Kordes floribunda:

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/76ab4b

Mountain Music, one of Buck's best shrubs, but regrettably difficult to find these days.

Pensioner's Voice, a Fryer floribunda:

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/a30665

Pink Poodle, one of Ralph Moore's minis:

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/6ae2ad

Rainforest, one of Ralph Moore's floribundas. Not a great photo, but I'll happily take a picture of anything in bloom in November.

Thumb of 2018-11-02/zuzu/b0c862

Trump Card, the name Cliff Orent gave to this sport of Rosie O'Donnell:

I have only had a couple of nights where the temps have gotten down to freezing. Like you, I only have a few roses in bloom, but I had to do a deep watering today because we haven't had any significant rain.

I could actually see the roses kind of perk up with the additional water. Usually, I can wait longer between deep waterings once the temps have dropped, but not this year.

I'll put my photos up once it's too cold to work outside.

I haven't done since I broke my foot last month, backing up from that bear at my window.


Mike, I thought you had just sprained your ankle when you backed up from the window. I am sorry to hear you actually broke your foot ... Sad I hate being on crutches. Not fun.

Lovely photos, Zuzu. Thanks for sharing.

Those photos were posted in alphabetical order. Wasn't it clever of the three Ralph Moore roses to be in a perfect sequence?

Lindylou - I was soooo impressed with my White Licorice which was new this summer. Constantly has sooo many fragrant flowers!!! It's an amazing rose! It did even better than my new Julia Child - which was no slouch.

Zuzu - thanks for all the pictures!! Pensioner's Voice took my breath away when I clicked on it. Lovey dubby
