Roses in October . . . ? ? ?

I really thought I was finished with our garden posts, but . . .
it was so beautiful and sunny again today . . . I had to get outside
and enjoy it . . . 
I took a stroll through the gardens and the rose garden, and this is what I saw . . .

roses, roses, everywhere

 David Austin's Squire ~ my favorite!

I had to pick a bouquet and bring them in the house. I couldn't let their beauty go to waste in the rain; and the fragrance is fabulous! I can't believe we can have a rose bouquet for Halloween.

Enjoy our last rose garden post. We'll be moving indoors for future posts, unless there is something unusual . . . like a white bunny or something else of interest to share. And, of course, there are a few more days of New England to post ~ New Hampshire, Connecticut and Vermont.
Happy fall to you.
