Autumn roses

The roses have come into a flush of flowers before they 'sleep' through Winter. I'll give them a prune then, before they come back to life in Spring.

I have left links to the original posts in the photo captions if you want to see more.

  1. Beautiful, I bet they all smell divine!! Do you crush up eggshells and spread them around? My random fact for the day is that roses love them!!

    1. I don't do that, I had no idea they loved it. I know they like banana skins, but I still don't get around to putting them on. Most scraps go straight in the chook bucket. One of these days I will have to start a compost bin.
