New Mexico Roses: A Change Is Gonna Come
New Mexico Roses: a change is definitely coming to the High Southwest Desert this weekend. The first cold front of the season is arriving in New Mexico, with unseasonably low temperatures and snow in some areas. This is a little early. The cold will not last long. But if the temperatures drop low enough, most of the roses will be close to the end for 2018. In this time of change, I offer a look back at some of the roses growing in New Mexico gardens, some mine and some of friends. All of these were photographed out of doors, as growing, in natural light. I groomed some of those in my garden. I did not groom roses growing elsewhere. You would not find those entered in a rose show. “It’s not what you look at, it’s what you see.” I saw beauty in all of these.

Change is on its way. I hope you have enjoyed a stroll through some New Mexico gardens with their roses. I have certainly enjoyed sharing them with you.

Beautiful roses. We’ve had some really nice roses, but some our roses are already showing cold damage.
You and Laurie really did have some spectacular roses this year. It would be great if next spring is as good for roses here as last spring. That’s the beauty of photography, though – memories, at least, of springs like 2018.
Susan: Thanks for bringing such beauty into my home.
Pearl, thank you so much for seeing the beauty! And, thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Your support has always meant so much to me.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful rose photos with us Susan. They show off their beautiful colors, forms and stamens. What a beautiful memory of summer!
Hi, Juanita. So nice to see you today. Thank you for the comment, and for your shared love of roses!
What beautiful flowers! They make Summer a joy, I’m sure! Have you had a very hot Summer this year?
Hi, Mel. Thank you! The summer here was pleasant for the most part. A couple of weeks were hot, that’s all. I got a lot of rain in my yard, which made me happy.
I hope all is well with you.
Thanks for dropping by; so nice to see you here. 🙂
Hi Susan, things are fair to middling with me, but I’m happy to say I’m enjoying my garden more and more. Summer is coming up now for us, and this year might even be a wet one! Good to know you’ve gotten some good rain too. 🙂
All beautiful! The “Rosa foetida bicolor” my personal favorite photo.
Hi, Trey! I just now saw this-sorry.
Thanks – some friends and I were walking around their property, turned a corner, and here was that rose in perfect light!
Again, sorry I missed this earlier!
Your photos are always spectacular, Susan, but the r. foetida bicolor is “outta the park”!
Carol, you are kind; thank you! That comes from a day with friends that was very special. I’m very happy that you enjoy that particular image!
Thanks for stopping by!
We’ve already had our first freeze/frost. We haven’t that 70-degree day to start Indian Summer yet.
