Thank you Frank :-)

A mild winter is the best kind :-) We had a mild winter last year, which was followed by a very mild spring, which was followed by a very warm summer, followed by an extremely mild fall ..... that's four in a row! A first in my lifetime at least! Since Icelanders are used to expecting the worst when it comes to weather it would be overly optimistic I think to expect another mild winter after all this exceptional mildness .... but it sure would be nice ... Big Grin

There are only three roses still flowering .... the others are all finished!

Europeana (which is late because I bought it this year so it didn't get the early start my other roses got)

The third one is Maigold which has been flowering non-stop since late June!
