FOTD – October 18 – Blue Roses

Yet another of my flowers which seems to have forgotten the script when it comes to staying true to their colour, First my ‘red’ poppies, then the ‘blue’ plumbago and now this ‘blue moon’ rose.

This one has completely lost the plot! Blue it is not. 🙂

Cee’s Flower of the Day – October 18, 2019 – Autumn Leaves





    • I have very poor sandy soils where i live – i think it could benefit from more organic matter… and lots more rain! 😦

      But they are still pretty and smell nice! 🙂


    • I won’t rub it in. 😇

      There is a down side here… we’ve had virtually no rain for 2 months and the weather is starting to warm up – am getting concerned for my garden, doing lots of handwatering but my rainwater tanks are already getting low and this early that is not good. 😦
