We usually have a very hard frost by now, but surprisingly, this fall has been a bit milder...so we still have a few smaller roses blooming :)

Here's Gartendirektor Otto Linne.

Here's Clothilde Soupert, in front of a very late blooming cosmos.

And John Cabot, which is a trooper...I have four in my garden :)

lavender_lass, for your zone 4 that's really amazing. It's somehow touching to see these stalwart guys holding on and giving you that last bit of pleasure of the rose season.

How lovely to still have a few blooms before winter sets in----I too had a couple of blooms on CS.----so enjoyable at this time of year.

So nice that you are still able to enjoy some roses! And lovely ones they are!

I like the tumble of plants in your fall garden.

Thanks Lavender_Lass for those lovely pictures. I like red roses, since they really brighten up the garden in late fall.

I'm considering Lavender_lassie rose for a partial shade location for next year. But I don't know if it smells good like Austins, or how big it will get.

Thank you for the kind comments. I'm so glad I took those pictures, because it got down to 18 degrees last night! The cosmos are done and the roses are starting to fade. It was wonderful having them bloom so long...and now it's time to put the garden 'to bed' until the bulbs start blooming...probably the end of March. At least it gives us a nice break, for the holidays :)

I wonder whether CS stands for Clotilde Soupert, the polyantha or Clothilde Soupert, the tea, according to HMF? Hopefully the former because a poly will be hardy in my Swedish garden but hardly a tea.
