The Growing Zone - Day 6
A sneak peak at what is still going strong this morning in my garden.
My New Dawn rose with a late November flush of blooms.
I hope I'm like these roses when I'm in my autumn years - having flourished in spring, persevered through the drought and intensity of summer days, and finished strong even through early frost of encroaching winter bringing beauty to those around them.
Coral bark Japanese maples bring four seasons of beauty here in Middle Tennessee.
I've loved these "Story Book" garden roses - tough miniature roses that have handled well my Tennessee climate extremes.
Even the Angelonia seems to have handled a few 31 degree mornings with little sign of wear and tear.
