Bogie has posted Last Rose of the Season that includes a beautiful photo of a bloom from her Queen Elizabeth bush. The Queen Elizabeth produces beautiful blossoms and I may even go ahead and buy one with such encouragement. However, the least I can do is post a photo of one of the three blossoms that are now abloom on our Spice Twice bush. The blossom has a couple of bugs on it and the leaves of the bush have abundant mildew (it's been a wet year, in general) but the color still comes through. A couple of years, our few roses have produced blooms up to the third week in November.
