Summer Roses in my garden 2016-17
2016-2017 Summer in Australia can be very changeable with quite a few heatwaves and temperatures in the 40s, this summer so far has been mild with quite a lot of rain and my rose garden is enjoying the respite
from the heat. As long as I keep up with dead heading there are new buds forming.

are the first rose blooms for the new season.

Painted roses and other flowers & leaves 2011 to 2013
So many roses bloomed in our spring that I never got around to processing them all. I'm now
going back over all the saved images and choosing some interesting shots that I missed.
Quite a few are from images I've created to use as a jigsaw puzzle & some are quite recently taken.

Some are experiments with my 100-400mm lens to see how useful it could be in the rose garden, especially for roses out of my reach

A walk in the autumn rose garden - 2010
After a very long hot and dry summer - no rain and strict water restrictions
its wonderful to feel the cooler air and even have some autumn rain. My
roses made a come back after just hanging in there during summer.

Starting late October the roses are in their first flush of the season, not far from their peak. We've had lovely spring rains and the old roses are looking fabulous. More rose photos can be found in the above list and here http://www.helpmefind.com/plant/l.php?l=99.3367&tab=10&lstLstgID=4267
