I didn't realize that so many roses are in bloom in the middle of October! This is from my visit to the garden on October 18th. (1:45)

One of the reasons I love coming down in winter. When all the color is gone from the Valley, I can come and enjoy blooms in the Garden... :)

thanks, Chris

Very nice presentation Chris. I still have roses blooming in my yard here in Illinois and it is Nov. 4th!! Mine bloom from early spring through late fall. Amazing to me.
