Blooming at the farm

The roses are blooming away happily in our farm garden, oblivious to the impending cold ...
... and the autumn leaves are starting to colour.
'Paris 2000', a French Delbard rose with its mesmerising stamens
Silver birches colouring up
Super soft peachy pink Rosa 'Heritage', by David Austin
The sweet Rosa 'Perfume Perfection'
And this is what happens when a rose gets confused! This is a David Austin rose called 'Winchester Cathedral' which should be a pure white. But because it has been bred from 'Mary Rose' which is pink, sometimes it sends up a throw back to its origins. And so I have this bicolour rose with an identity crisis!

    Your garden looks divine and I too am a lover of the garden and especially roses.
    I love love love David Austen roses but living here in Sydney they don't always do so well.
    I guess alot of the deciduous trees out your way will be turning lovely colours by now, a couple of pictures would be lovely if you get time.
