Once September comes the frost will start to do its work and it will be time to think of winter. I will miss the blossoms, particularly the climbing roses but the break makes me appreciate spring and green things all the more.
The roses are a hardy Finnish hybrid called "Polar" that Alaska Mill and Feed sells and I've had mine for three years now and it's over eight feet tall. That's impressive for Alaska--you don't take roses in the garden for granted here as they don't winter well.
Wednesday is the last day to enter The Write-Away Contest--hope to see you there!
