Carpet roses grow close to the ground much like...you guessed it...a carpet. Not many roses are hardy enough to grow in East Gwillimbury, but these are! And they bloom without ceasing all (YES ALL) summer. In summer's heat they don't bloom as profusely, it's true, but look at them NOW! Pretty nice for this late in October, eh?

- East Gwillimbury is a rural town less than an hour north of Toronto, Canada's largest city. My family calls me CameraGirl because I take my camera with me wherever I go.
Yes very nice! Such a rich red color almost like a... Ruby :)
Such vibrant colour! Another lovely photo you have given us to enjoy!
A real pleasure to look at! I haven't seen those (I think) around here - do they like rain?
A very nice treat for late October!! have a wonderful week...
we call them rambling roses in England........great shot.
Oh yes! So very nice and what a splendid colour!
What a nice flower to have nearby. A great shade of red.
EG: This is a great little flower. I must say that I'm surprised you have anything growing.We went under freezing last night in Ohio.
What else can I say besides that is just beautiful.
These roses have been known to survive several frosts. One year they bloomed into late November. That was a very nice year!
They must like rain as we had a very rainy summer and they have never been s happy. ;-)
That would indeed be lovely to look at all summer long.
Beautiful! And thanks for the name:) Mine is up HERE. Hope to see you there! Happy Today's Flower!~
Great moment, magnificent carpet rose, red is very special, enhance the Today's Flowers this week, thank you for participation.

Very nice shots.
Truly a great achievement for your latitude! Floribundas are such delightfully prolific bloomers and this one ia also so bright and ties in nicely with autumn colours.
Enjoyed every picture..the birds, the Carpet roses, the beautiful and colourful trees, blue skies and ...
- Cheers Gisela.
Very pretty! Sounds like something I need here if they could survive the heat.
That is such a really great color. Beautiful ! Thanks for sharing. I still have a couple rose buds trying to make it before winter.
Wonderful...roses are a favorite of mine....lovely color.
They are such a brilliant red! I sure wouldn't mind having some to brighten up the place about now!
Lovely red flowers!
These are beautiful and i like that they are close to the ground so many different kinds of roses
Very beautiful. Nice choice.
Really pretty! I love roses. I was wondering why they called them carpet roses so I'm glad you gave the answer. :-)
Very beautiful to look at!!
I have still blooming roses on my terrace, which is increadible so late in October...
Great photo of a beautiful flower! Thanks for sharing.
If you have the time, pls stop by my blog for the last of the morning glories.
Have a great day!
Great shot and nicely use of depth of field.
The look beautiful to me. And, what a nice carpet.
Beautiful vivid color.... this is the kind of shot that cheer u up... :-)
Though not as far North as you, I wonder how far we can take "Today's Flowers" into the fall and/or winter. Thank God for carpet roses!
That's the reason we call them here in Greece "wild roses"!
Love the red color. Also like your bird shots in the previous blog.
Great flowers, thanks so much for sharing.
So pretty! Just when one thinks all the flowers are almost gone, you see a beauty like yoru rose!
