A floral mosaic


My Knockout roses are blooming their little hearts out now.  Some of my other flowers are still looking pretty good.  I've mostly let my pots go...frankly, I just got tired of watering.  I really haven't watered these in the ground much lately, and as dry as it's been, I'm surprised they are doing so well.  The Knockout you see in the mosaic is one I planted in the middle of summer.  The colder weather with the killing frost is coming, I know.  I am enjoying these every day that I have them.   Hope your week ahead is a good one. 

Until next time...

  1. A beautiful mosaic! Your roses really are putting on a burst of speed.

    I was surprised that mine didn't seem to be affected by the frost on those two nights. Would you believe that the weather turned warm over the weekend and we were back in the 80s yesterday? Crazy shifts in temp that's for sure.

  5. Gorgeous mosaic, Cheryl... Our roses are still blooming also--and will until frost. Then we'll cut them back and they will do dormant through the winter.

    Hugs,

  8. I have a couple of knock out roses also. They're great. They just keep blooming and growing without my work on my part! Your flowers are so beautiful. I lvoe the white one. Got rid of the rest of my potted plants on Saturday. Two of the pots were still going strong! But I know the colder days are coming in a few and just wanted all the mess to be gone. I like how you put the pictures in a mosaic, very nice. Hope you had a nice day!

  10. Your mosaic is just beautiful, Cheryl. The colors are so vibrant. This is a lovely sight to behold before the frost comes.
    My knockout roses are doing much better now than they did all summer. I think the heat was a bit much for them (& me :).

  16. Your flowers are beautiful! I guess that roses are the last ones to hang on in the fall.

  18. Hi Cheryl!

    Oh my goodness, they are just gorgeous! What is it about cooler weather that the flowers love?! That truly is one of the most beautiful roses I have seen all summer!

    I get kind of lazy about watering this time of year too. My petunias are pretty hardy, so they just loved the snow we had! Today, I was picking off the old blooms and noticed so many new ones - If they only knew what was coming... :0(

    Hugs,
    Barb

  19. I've given up watering, too, Cheryl... but, none of mine stayed looking this good! Knockouts deserve their name, don't they?

    Love that quilt on the barn! I think that second barn needs a quilt of its own, too. ;)

    Have a great week. blessings ~ Tanna

  20. Beautiful blooms and I like seeing them in a mosaic format.

    The roses love this cooler weather.
    I have very little left looking presentable. We are still dry.

  23. Cheryl thank you for stopping by! Your flowers are beautiful :) I think our little bit of MissouREE is trying to make up for that hot, humid summer with this beautiful Fall. Took a trip to CoMo and the trees along the bluffs were starting to put their color on!

  24. Wow, thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures of your flowers. I love flowers and this year we didn't do very well in the planting flowers. We have few; but I want more. Just keep on enjoying those lovely flowers and your journey.
