    1. That might be a blessing! This snowfall was sudden, thick, dryish, leaving the roads clear. It will be gone completely by tomorrow, I’d guess.

  1. Just occasionally when i see lovely photographs like this I wish we had snow, but then i remember England can’t cope with snow so am then relieved we don’t!!

    1. I know what you mean. Mississippi isn’t any better prepared than we are (you’d probably say they are worse prepared because I don’t think they stockpile salt), but luckily the roads retain heat so the snow that fell on them didn’t stick.

  2. You know, of course, my eyes could barely get beyond the buds! These photos are spectacular, and I thank you for them. The open roses are breathtaking, but those little buds are even beyond that. The graceful bough/bow of buds in that first photo is gorgeous — and it seems to have an echo atop the gate triptych. The rose hips in the last photo have their own kind of grace; I do like the life cycle in that photo. Now we know our misfortune in that roses and snow so seldom appear together. This is rare beauty indeed, and beautifully captured. What a start to my day!

    1. It was an opportunity I couldn’t resist. 2017 had been a relative rose drought for me as I kept being in the wrong place at the right time, but this more than made up for it.

  3. Amazing roses blooming even under snow. I guess the picture was taken sometimes in the fall. My roses are wrapped in burlap for at least a month or so. We had some record cold temperatures already in the second part of October. They stopped blooming then.

    Today we have lots of snow, which has fallen yesterday and overnight. I am in Greater Toronto Area, zone 5b. At least it all looks more festive now and we are getting ready for Christmas. πŸ™‚

    1. It was taken the day I posted it (9th December). The snow does make everything seem instantly Christmassy, for those of us in the northern hemisphere, at least.

      1. You probably live in warmer climate if your roses were still blooming in December. Our roses are asleep long time ago. I am in Greater Toronto Area. Sometimes they were blooming for longer, like for example last year, but because of the extreme cold we already had in October, they stopped blooming sooner.

        Maybe it is also your love for them that makes them blooming longer for you. πŸ™‚
