FALL ROSES AND BERRIES FOR WHITE WEDNESDAY...

Hello my blogger friends!  Time for another White Wednesday!  The roses in our garden are loving the cooler fall weather and are producing what will probably be their last blooms of the year.  Cooler fall weather for us here in central California is highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 50s.  It's so nice to actually enjoy being outside in the garden again and not be melting from the summer heat.

I clipped some roses and berries from our garden to share with you for White Wednesday.  I hope you enjoy them. :)

These deep blue berries grow on our Verbena bushes in the fall.


A French Lace rose bud in one of my vintage stoneware bottles.

 










It's hard to believe that this rose is from the same French Lace rose bush as the rose bud above... that's how much this lovely rose changes from start to finish. :)




Head on over to Kathleen's White Wednesday link party  to join in on the fun or for creative inspiration in white. Thanks for hosting every week, Kathleen!

I hope you're all having a wonderful week so far!

'Til next time...

~ Jo :-)

  2. Hi Jo!
    Everytime I stop by I see something new I would love to have...a stoneware bottle. Watch for my post coming soon...once I find one! :)
    Your pictures are lovely. I love how you just scatter the pretty around ~ all my roses are gone but my mums are taking over. They don't make the best bouquets though.
    Hope all is well ~

  4. Yay, more pretties from Jo!!! LOVE them all!

    We're having a White Wednesday here - it's snowing and 35 degrees outside. I'm stayin' in.

    Thanks for popping by and visiting me today. That mosaic didn't take very long at all - it was created by Tumblr - I just hit the Print Screen button pasted a few rows into Paint Shop Pro and uploaded it to Blogger. Ta-daaaa! :)

    Happy day to you, Jo!
    Hugs,

  19. Hi Jo,

    Your wonderful photographs, should grace the pages of a glossy magazine or a coffee table book.
    The rose is gorgeous and isn't it lovely the way they start pinkish, then go to white.

    Happy day
    Hugs

  36. Hi Jo - I'm so jealous that you still get rose blooms this time of the year. Love that pale pink/salmon color.

    BTW, I'm having a gift raffle. Hope you can stop by and enter to win some cutesy things. Stopping by from WW.

  38. After a complete remodel, including my garden, I'm just on to planting roses. I hope to get some nearly as beautiful as yours. I go partially by scent too. Nothing like the smell of a rose.

  49. You should take a rose and put it in your coat kinda like the poppy's people wear for remembrance day. That would be really cute.
