Late October Knock-out.
We had a very wet Spring in Northwest Arkansas. Then we had a very long, hot, dry Summer. I would not pretend to imply that our Summer was a brutal as our neighbors to the south in Texas, but it was still a very tough summer on the plants. I have lost several shrubs. However, the Knock-out roses seemed to have survived quite nicely and are blooming more profusely now than ever before. We've had two frosts and I believe that the first hard freeze in just around the corner, so, I'll be pruning these hardy little bushes for the winter very soon. Still, when I came home from work the other evening I just thought that a final photo shoot was in order. This capture turned out to be my favorite gem of the the group. Happy Ruby Tuesday all.
