Rose Brave

During my last trip home to the Okanagan I found a number of roses still bravely blooming in Penticton’s public rose garden. It was very overcast with occasional misty rain and a very sharp wind.

Some were faring better than others, but I was surprised at how resilient they were.

Given how hard-hit British Columbia has been by heat waves, forest fires, floods and landslides, all in less than five months, we may all need to become much more resilient than we have been.

October Tea Roses

I found some tea roses still blooming in their cheery pink.

They won’t last much longer now, but it was lovely to see them still rosing along.

Having spent a week in Penticton, I am now back in the north. There aren’t any leftover roses here, as it’s too chilly in October!

It was really great to experience some gentler autumn weather for a little bit, though.
