Fall roses and a note...

The final flush of roses is on in the garden now and
 I thought I would share a few pictures I have been taking of them ...
in the house and in the garden.




This pretty little rose is Colette. A  'Romantica Rose'.
It is an extremely vigorous rose, and does well here in my garden. 



It can be trained as a short climber. One of them grows on the south side of my house.
Below is a view of it now in it's second bloom cycle.



***

I love this rose below, but don't have the name of it right now. I have it written down,
but didn't take the time to find it. It looks a lot like my 'Angel Face' rose, but has
a little more peach in it.


I have it sitting in the kitchen window.
Sure wish you could smell this pretty thing.
It dries beautifully too.





The rose below is 'Morden Blush'. I can't get enough of this rose,
and so I have several bushes in my garden.













The rose below is 'Moxie'.
This rose shows up almost like a neon light in the garden.
I love it's form and scent, and wish I could find another.
My mother gave me this rose, so it is very special to me.







For any of you that have 'Bonica' in your garden, I don't need to tell you 
how special this rose is. 
Perfect in almost every way for us cold Winter gardeners.




She is just covered with blooms right now, and goes into Winter blooming like crazy.





You can look out in December and see the frozen blooms still clinging to it.




***

I wanted to show the sight along the driveway right now.
 We have this little arbor over the iron headboard gate that I have on my sidebar, and
the morning glory is blooming now and looks so pretty. 

Morning Glory are one of those 'granny garden' plants that I love so much.



I had an elderly friend who has long since passed away, and she had them growing
everywhere. I think they are charming in every way.




A peek of the gazebo through the arbor


I'm not catching on to Blogger's new way of loading pictures, so this picture of my 'Morden Blush'
rose should have been below the pictures of the bouquets of it above.

Just a view of it on the bush.






The picture above and the one below, are of the roses growing along the driveway now.


Finally Fall is coming to the garden, although it is still very green,
some of the trees are starting to color up a bit.
I am madly cutting things back, and getting the garden ready for it's
long Winter nap.
Now is when I wish I could hire someone to help me.
But, boy do I need the exercise, so I will go it alone for another year.
You can see that the pruners are missing from my little bucket
tied to my tree. I wonder where the heck I've laid them down now.



I had a lot of questions about the horses near my little getaway, and thought I would answer
you here. Yes I do ride, but haven't for quite awhile. I think it has to do a lot with
wondering how I could take care of Landon, if I fell off and broke something, LOL!

My husband goes up about every other day to check the amount of grass
in which ever pasture they are on at the time. It is time for them to go on the hillside now,
because the grass is plentiful there now, and for some reason
 they love the dry grass that grows there.
The water is plentiful, because of the creek and the natural springs that are there.
We have seven horses total and love 'em.
In the late Fall, we bring them to the home place and stable them here. 
Then they sulk all Winter, until they can be on their forty acres, 
pretending to be wild ponies again. 
Thank you for all of the wonderful messages you left me about the shack
(okay, I'll change it's name)
 I cherish them, and the friendships we have forged  here.

These flowers are so gorgeous. I have one rose bush of my own - it's yellow. I got married with yellow roses so when we found this house with yellow roses in its front patch of garden, I just had to have it. But your roses are simply grand - thanks for sharing.

Junebug said...

Your final roses of the fall are so pretty. I know what you mean about garden help this time of the year. Yep, I go it alone also but don't have near the size garden as you do. So here is to finding youf clipper and happy clipping!!!

Fräulein Klein said...

Dear June,
you have so many beautiful roses on your garden! It´s a dream!!!!!!
Big Hugs,

Jacqueline said...

Dear June,
I am so in awe and a little envious of your beautiful garden......your roses are out of this world and the photographs of them are just as beautiful. I can't pick a favourite, as they are all amazing...,and, I too love the Morning Glory. It's so pretty. Your roses are a credit to your 'green fingers' and all of the hard work that you put into your wonderful garden. You have so many blooms that you can pick them and bring them into the house.
I had to chuckle when you said about your pruners !! I do that all the time with everything that I use in the garden !!!!
It's so lovely that you can enjoy these last days of beauty in the garden before winter sets in. XXXX

Sofies Haus said...

I love the last picture dear June!!!
Your roses are just stunning!!!I have not that much roses in my garden but I enjoy them a lot currently!!!Hughs Anja

Ozma of Odds said...

Your roses are stunning, Mom needs your secrets. Love the bucket tied to the tree, great idea. Have a wonderful day. Love our trip through your roses.

Bettyann said...

Dear JUne thank you for sharing your lovely roses...I have a few bushes, but with such a wet summer they were not in their prime..my fav is one that was here on the property, it has a soft white-green colour...take care..

Alaina said...

Your roses are beautiful. Mine are winding down putting out their last blooms, before the frost I need to get them in. You sound like me, I am always misplacing my pruners even though there is an extra one on hand for just that reason. Yep I usually can't find either one on and off during the gardening season. Have a wonderful week.

jade said...

My dear June,
your garden is a paradise in every time of the year - and you have soooooo many beautiful roses.......how romantic!!!!!!!!! Enjoy those wonderful last days in your garden, kisses to all the sweet horses and henns ;)),

Hugs Jade

LiLi M. said...

Your roses are stunning, simply gorgeous! And they are huge, they look like peonies (we call those peony roses, now you know why!). I cannot pick a favorite! They are all too beautiful! Too bad we cannot smell them. Enjoy them while they still last! Have a lovely week! Hugs LiLi

I love reading your blogs more than any other. They nearly bring me to tears and there is a peacefulness and blessedness in them. Your pictures and roses are so beautiful, it looks more like spring than fall. Thank you so much for sharing!!!

Rita said...

Amazing roses....oh boy you do get to exercise and I am complaining with my 2 acres! Pruners, what are those? I am constantly looking for them, I know if we dig there is got to be 5 or 6 pairs buried in the land. Shack?
Did I ever tell you that I had a store that lasted 4 months and the name was Shabby Shack?.....I prefer
"La Casina", "La Casetta"?
Ciao Rita mammabellarte

Fete et Fleur said...

I can almost smell those rose. You have captured them beautifully. Maybe you should call the Shack, "A Little Bit of Heaven?"

Hugs!

Victorian1885 said...

Good evening dear friend
My..My..do you ever rest? Your garden is so beautiful and you are blessed to have such beauty this late in the year. In my part of Canada we have pretty much just potted mums out to enjoy. Our growing season is the end of May until around Sep15 then we usually get a frost and have to get ready for Fall cleanup. This week has been sunny and warm but the flower beds are pretty much cleaned out by now.
Thank you for sharing your little piece of Heaven with us! Have a great rest of the week!
Hugs,
Wanda

Terra said...

Colette and all of your roses are charming, and I am happy for you that you have horses in your life.

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

If I paid your airfare, would you fly down here and help me get my garden started? ;-)

Kidding of course, but man, you really need to write a coffee table book on beautiful gardens!

XO,
Anne

Diane said...

Your roses are spectacular! They just look beautifully loved. You'll find your pruners for sure after it rains or next spring under the snow - rusted! Beautiful post, June. Diane

We had rain yesterday afternoon and last night so that was wonderful, did you get it?

Carolyn said...

Hi June ,
Your roses are doing so well and are so beautiful-I love them all.
Great photography as always.
Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog.

Take care,
Carolyn

wendy said...

You still have flowers around......mine are long gone. LONG GONE. In fact, this year they never even really got a good start.
so sad

maría cecilia said...

I was so expecting a new post from you, dear June, knowing that you will bring much joy in everything you choose to share with us... but your garden again at autumn time is amazingly beautiful and how your roses are stil blooming in such a pretty way amazes me so much...and always with your great photographer skills it can´t be more lovely than it is!!!
I love morning glories, which we call them here "suspiro" and it grows wildly in my hill and everywhere in the garden, so lovely it is!!!
Thank you so much for your ever so inspiring posts my dear June.
much joy,
maria cecilia

Draffin Bears said...

Hi June,

Love the last of your beautiful roses before winter sets in.
You have such a beautiful garden and can just imagine the gorgeous fragrance at your place.
The roses are all beautiful but my favourite would have to be Colette.
Thanks for sharing all this romantic beauty.

Happy Thursday
Hugs
Carolyn

Mary Ellen said...

Oh to still have roses blooming! Mine have stopped for several weeks now due to the cold nights I think.

I am finally getting some fall decorating done. Sally from Salmagundi blog is coming over Friday and it has been a great excuse to put canning equipment away and start the cleaning and fall nesting!!

Lovely pictures always!

All That Jazz said...

Those roses are so beautiful! I can almost smell them through your blog1 :) I bought dahlias at the market last week but not I want roses!

Georgianna said...

June, you had to know I would be just crazy about this post – your roses are magnificent and I'm scribbling notes on the ones I'm not familiar with. My sunny areas are limited so it's just a dream list but what a lovely dream. I loved hearing about your horses, too. I can imagine them being disgruntled at being cooped up during the winter. Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead. xo – g

kerrie said...

Oh my this is just what I needed to see before going to bed. Now I will have sweet dreams for sure. I have to get me one or more of those Morden Blush roses...beauty~full~ness. And a rose that blooms into winter...need that one too. Your lil shack is a dream cottage in the woods..your horses are gorgeous. Oh how my Gracie would love to visit them, pet, and just be near them. She's always wanted a horse. She would be so good with them because she is quiet, patient, but steady and firm. I still 'hope' for her to have land with horses one day. It's never too late.

Your life is far away from the hussle and bussle of city life and though I guess it gets lonely sometimes it is so wholesome and good. You are a lucky girl.

Ingrid said...

Hello June,
oooh those roses are so beautiful, here autumn has arrived and no roses in my garden anymore...we will have to wait untill next year. Also love those blue flowers, in spring I am going to put one in my garden too.
Hugs, Ingrid.

BELDECOR by Bine said...

Dear June,

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning dear June! As always, your posts are filled with the gentle touch of God's beauty...I hope you are well and happy dear one. Anita

A Cottage Muse said...

Oh June...I envy your green thumb! After you fly to Anne's you need to stop here too!! I love the way you have captured their beauty!!

Betty Jo said...

June your roses and photos are gorgeous. I love the morning glory vines and blooms too. Maybe you could name your little house, shabby shack! ♥

...Miss...Maddie's... said...

June your photos are always so beautiful and bring a smile to one's face and gasp of breath as they hold one spellbound.
Though like most of us out here your posts are not as frequent as they once were I look forward to them, their beauty and the common thread we share of heart, family and home.
Enjoy your holiday weekend.

Half-heard in the Stillness said...

I so enjoyed gazing at all your wonderful roses, my favourites are pictures 3 and 4. What wonderful colours, how marvelous is your garden it's like a heavenly sanctury.
Thank you so much for letting us all share it.

d. reyné said...

Oh my dear friend...I yearn for such roses!
Mine pooped out early this year.
What's up with that? So thank you for sharing yours!
I just want to jump in the car and head your way...is the shack available for rent?
I hope you are not overdoing your fall cleanup...I know I nearly did!
Blessings and big hugs,
Donna

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

The roses are just beautiful, June! Pink roses are my favorites and you have so many different kinds. If we will ever have a garden, I will have to ask you tons of questions about all the varieties :-).
Have a great day!
Hugs to you,
Julia

maryboys said...

thanks for taking photos and sharing them with all of us...so much beauty, it's hard to take in! and you get to see this every day:) your hard work brings you the joy that you deserve...

Pondside said...

All those gorgeous images and the one I'm stuck on is the bucket on the tree - what a brilliant idea for clipper and hand hoe storage during the summer. I'm always looking for mine - never put them in the same place twice.
Your roses are an inspiration. We spent the weekend cleaning in the garden and planting a few roses that have been languishing in pots. I look forward to seeing the colours that show up next summer!

Deb said...

Your garden, roses, morning glory, and little blue sap bucket ~ all so incredibly gorgeous!!
Each visit here is an absolute treat xo

Tracey said...

Incredible! I can ALWAYS count on you June for some gorgeous garden pictures!!!

Big hugs ~

Marydon said...

Oh, June, I am in heaven! Your roses are exquisite, take me away!!! I have been thinking of doing a morning glory on one side & a climbing roses on the other over our arbor Harold installed this summer, I believe you have sold me on this idea.

You so capture your flowers so beautifully to share with us. I so appreciate this ...

Have a great weekend.
TTFN ~ Hugs of love, Marydon

Julie Marie said...

Hello my friend... your flowers are all still so beautiful... I am drawn as well to the old~fashioned varieties and love the morning glories... it's so hard to believe summer is over and it's time to put our gardens to sleep for the long winter ahead... I keep hoping for a long Indian Summer, well into November!...please let me know what you end up calling your beautiful little getaway in the mountains... (I thought I was the only one who thought it needed a prettier name than "shack"! but apparently others loved it as much as I did and thought it much too lovely and it needed another name!)xoxo Julie Marie

Alice W. said...

Your roses {and other blooms}
are absolutely gorgeous June! So sorry it has been so long since I have visited here...I know that I am missing out on all the beauty. Your photos never cease to amaze me... ;)

Vicki said...

Hi, June,
Yes, I do love this time of year. Your roses are still looking very pretty. We have to take lots of pictures, don't we, so we can remember them through the winter. Your morning glories are glorious. I love these old fashioned garden plants, don't you? How funny that we were both Daisy Mae for Halloween. I was thinking that some of my younger readers would not know who she was (not implying that you are old or anything, ha!!). You and I both have fond childhood memories I believe. Enjoy your wonderful upcoming autumn weekend, my sweet friend~ Love and blessings always~ Vicki

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

June dearest! Thank you for coming to try on a pair of boots...whatever type suits you, wear them in STYLE and how fun that you DANCE!!!! What a blast that must be. Enjoy yourself on the 16th dearest and have a peaceful weekend! Anita

Rita said...

Hi June girl,
your roses are stunning and your pics are a marvel.
wish I had my own garden to plant plenty of rose bushes and varieties. Boy, that would be plenty of excercise do be done when fall comes . no need to go to the gym then.
can you believe that after nearly two years of search I haven't yet found the house that makes me say"YES, this is the one"????????
why so difficult. A matter of money I guess!
LOL
hugs

J. Wecker Frisch said...

Hi June - Love the roses and the jardinieres they're in. I don't have near enough sun for roses. Yours look gorgeous!

kelli said...

Hello June, Once again, I am in awe. Your roses are so so beautiful. I know I say that everytime but it is so true.
I showed your photos of your horses to my 11 year old daughter, who is madly in love with horses of all kinds and she just loved them and love the thought of them grazing in the fields pretending to be wild.
Seeing your pics makes me miss my westeren mountains very much. Have a beautiful day, June

Oh, I don't know...The Shack sounds ok to me. ;} And the Morning Glories...they are my very favoritest flower ever! My dad say they are a weed! The nerve of some people!

Happy to hear you are going to rename the shack! :)
Your roses are still so gorgeous, June. Most of the leaves have fallen here, and there is a forecast for snow next week. We'll see.
Have a lovely weekend!

Secret Garden Cottage said...

Your roses are STUNNING, June, and the morning glory is beautiful!! Thanks so much for sharing the names with us... there are so many that I want to add to my garden. :)

I LOVE the idea of hanging a bucket off of a tree trunk for your gardening tools! I'm gonna try that... thanks for the idea!

I had a hard time getting used to Blogger's new way of uploading pictures, too. I finally realized to only upload a grouping at a time, and then go back and upload another grouping of like pictures. That seemed to make it easier to organize my posts. :)

Have a great weekend, June!
Hugs ~ Jo

paperbird said...

I want to live in your garden... it is HEAVENLY June... so much work I know, especially this time of year when the garden need to be put to bed for the winter. I will be thinking of you when I am on my knees in the dirt pruning and weeding!!!!

Riet said...

You have the most beautiful roses in your garden dear JUne. And all your pictures are out of this world. Just fantastic.It must be so thankful to be working in that garden and see everything grow. Wonderful.
Have a nice weekend.

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Hey June,
I'll make a deal with you. I'll come & help clear out the roses. But in return you have to teach me all you know about gardening! I'll stay in the shack & we'll go ride horses in the evening. If you start to fall I'll throw myself in front of you & break your fall. That's how much I love ya! Lisa

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

That Z, she's a cut up! but I do like her suggestions.
Your roses look nothing like mine....must be all that free horse manure your using:)
I love bonica too and that one you said looks like angel face.... The multi colored one just floored me.
Your house must smell like heavenly.

Barbara said...

The Colette roses are so full that when I firstn looked at the photo, I thought they were peonies!
Such lovely flowers, June! Morning Glories are a favorite too.

Blogger can be very temperamental about loading photos. It takes time and patience.

Lovey said...

Just to stand here and catch a breeze and smell all the pretty roses! Love you...

awal.ny said...

Oh June, I am sorry I missed you. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Did you hear the hammering, my husband was putting up the siding on the addition and the laughter, the kids were running around enjoying the crisp fall air. I wish you would have knocked I would love to sit and chat with you over coffee, next time I will make sure to leave you a special treat. Have a wonderful weekend.

Sharing with Sherri said...

Oh my gosh June, your roses and and photos of them are SOOO incredibly GORGEOUS!! I can't believe it!!

When you said you were going to have start cutting things back for the winter, I felt so sad inside...
You can't find your clippers because I hid them!! I don't want all your pretty flowers to go away for the winter:(

But I can always come back and see your lovely photos anytime! Okay I feel a little better now.

Okay...look in the hammock for the clippers I think that was where I hid them! Now get in it and relax for a while...it's Sunday!

Love and Hugs, Sherri:)

Rebecca said...

Hi Sweetie
The roses are just gorgeous, I love them and wish I could smell them. Mine are almost all gone with the harsh winters we have had the past few years. Most of my English roses have gone wild and I even lost my old large bush.
In the spring I plan on revamping the yard now that I will have a little more time.
Blessings

Mary Ellen said...

June I put my vote in at Tales of OC cottage for you to win that darling pink teapot when I saw your comment about boiling water in a pan!!!! All this time I had imagined you getting up in the morning and making you a lovely pot of tea in a pretty teapot of course- clipping some of your flowers and going and sipping your tea in your gorgeous garden (out of a china rose teacup of course!!)

I hope you win!!

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Hi June
I keep missing everyone's posts lately.. nearly missed this one!!! so glad I didn't.. WOW.. what absolutely beautiful roses you have... and so many!!! It must be a lot of work for you but imagine you enjoy the fruits of your labour... I just love looking at these gorgeous shots and wish I had such beauties to bring into my home...

I've had one rose since I've lived in my current place and my neighbour told me he thinks they shouldn't be cut.. should be left outside.. boo hoo!!! only having one I left it there.. but I;d love to be able to bring some inside also.. any more and I'll be ignoring the neighbour!!

Wonderful to hear about your horses and they must feel in heaven having all that acreage to run around.. We strangely have quite a few horses in my area.. strange as it is the suburbs .. not far from the city.. but as there are quite a few parks around this area.. it's not too unusual to see a horse here or there...

Have a lovely week and thanks for sharing your roses with us.. xxx Julie

Ana said...

Hi June,
Your roses are just stunning...You can tell the amount of love and caring you put into them. I have a little garden and feel it's tons of work to keep up, I can only imagine how much time you dedicate in yours...But I bet you it's all worth it. The joy I imagine it gives you and the people that visit it is probably what makes it all worth your while. Thanks for sharing.

Hugs and Kisses,

♥Ana

What exquisite pictures of the roses. We do have lots of tropical flowers but nothing like this.

Sares said...

Hello June! Your pictures are always so breathtakingly beautiful. Your flowers must bring you so much joy! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and say hello to the ponies for me!

cathleen said...

Just stopped in to say hi! Oh...these photos are so lovely, June. You are already making me miss my roses! There is sad beauty in my cottage garden right now. You know, the prettiness of autumn but all those dying perennials that need cut back. Oh well......

Rose ~Victorian Rose ~ said...

There really must be at least two of YOU doing all this...you garden, post lovely, lovely images on your blog...comment on other people's blogs....you create, take care for Landon...and a house, studio and husband, just to name a few.
You are some woman is all I can say.

Love you,

Rose

LiLi M. said...

Hi june, just popping by to wish you a happy and sunny Sunday, hoping that you all are enjoying yourselves as I missed you last Wednesday. Maybe just no time to blog, which is good actually, but I haven't forgotten you, hugs from afar!

Rostrose said...

Dearest June - sorry that I needed such a long time to visit you again! I've had very busy weeks - but good weeks, too :o) And it feels wonderful to see your rose-photos - it's refreshing / relaxing like a summer-breeze! And I also took a look to your horses-photo-story! Wow - what a magic place and very pretty horses, dear June!!! Thanks for sharing these amazing images!
Warm hugs, Traude

Rosie said...

Oh dearest....
How do you manage to get your garden to look so heavenly, at this time of the year...completely amazing!
So how is my long lost friend.
It has been so very, very, long...I regret that life has been filled to the brim with things to do, people to enjoy, events to savor. I fear it will stay crazy for quite some time as the season of sparkle is almost upon us.
We decorate in a weeks time...so will come for a cuppa when time permits...xoxox...love Rosie

A Fanciful Life said...

June, these photos almost leave me speechless they are so beautiful. Have you considered publishing them in a book? They are just so drop dead gorgeous. Of course, I'm sure the real things are even more so. I bet i could spend an entire day in your garden!

Hugs,
