December Roses

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #104.

I saw this bed of roses saying "to heck with winter!" yesterday. I didn't expect to see any pollinators, but upon closer examination: a hoverfly.

I love bees. A bee in a garden means you have a healthy garden.

I won't get a rose until February. For Valentine's Day. And then, only one!

Yes, we've seen roses blooming here in Virginia too. It should be snowing by now.

How cheery to still find roses in bloom; and little bees too. Enjoy the nice weather while it lasts!

A bit unusual this time of the year!

Really nice to see the roses in bloom.
In the Netherlands are now in December, a number of roses in bloom that had been meoten actually already overblown. The winter is short and the temperature too high.
Very beautiful pictures.
