We did some work in our garden last weekend and it was surprising to see that some of our rose bushes were still blooming, even though this is the end of Autumn with Winter fast approaching.
This is a delightful rose called "Mr Lincoln". It's hard to believe that "Mr. Lincoln" won an AARS distinction back in 1965. The velvety, deep red hybrid tea is still one of the most popularly grown garden roses. Beautiful as well as strongly scented, Mr. Lincoln's blossoms are held on stiff, upright stems.
