Winter rose-Red rose in snow

Welcome to another macro flowers weekend, this time with winter roses.

Most roses are long gone in December. The rose bushes of this one species are under snow for days now and they don't seam to suffer. I would say, they like is.
I took some photos on the first day of snow, this week and I repeated them after a few days.
Each second photo was taken two days later.
Click on the first photo and see the entire series enlarged.

As you can see, the difference is only a thicker snow blanket, the roses are not altered, even now at -6C.

Yes, they seem to thrive. Looks like you have the sme weather that we have. That light fluffy snow falling endlessly down.

I can't believe you still have flower in the snow!

Jama said...

They still survive during winter? amazingly beautiful photographs, I can see the fine details of the snow on the rose.

Joanne Olivieri said...

Maia, that is just stunningly exquisite.

Sara Chapman said...

That's really remarkable. I've never seen roses take snow and cold like that. Can you find out the name and tell us? Maybe a local nursery knows what they are. In any case, they are gorgeous!

Wonderful that the rose with stand such weather. I will do some research to see if I can find some here. Though we don't have frost, the weather can be pretty harsh.

Maia T said...

I could try Sara, but I don't know where to start, there are thousands of species.

Rajesh said...

Very pretty.

Beautiful rose in the snow! I saw a perfect snow flake in the first photo..

Maia T said...

Yes Mumsy, I am very proud of that snowflake. I could never take a snowflake macro when I tried and now it just happened.

What a TREAT! I love your snow covered flowers!!!!

Quilt Works said...

Oh, I just noticed a snow-covered benched behind the chrysanthemum - what a beautiful composition. The curve of the bench really adds another dimension to the flower image. What a great eye you have, Maia! Even when I expect it by following your blog for a long time, I am always impressed!

Misty DawnS said...

Beautiful images. I miss the flowers.

Lui said...

Maia, that was such a great documentary! The snow practically preserved the flower! But I always chill the cut roses I received and they last for a week!;-)

We do have a lot of freaky weather lately and the plants and animals are finding ways to thrive!

Btw, you're right in saying that you can steal the energies of flowers when you touch them. Just as you can heal the flowers (plants, animals and people) with your touch! I'd like to think I do the latter.

Have another blooming week!

That rose is amazing, I can't believe it looks so beautiful under those conditions.

Your fine snow reminds me of more than 35 years ago when i had my first winter in Canada. The snow was just lie the photo. The rose is really well kept.

In fact, In Malaysia and Sinagpore, they could do with snow for wedding bouquets, some bride's roses become too opened because the weather is so hot.
