McDonald's Roses

Category: Stomping Grounds | Posted: Sun Nov 15, 2009 10:07 pm

Yes, I eat at McDonalds. And yes, sometimes I don't appreciate the small things that are put out there for us to see. This morning after a hard frost, and even harder rains all week, I just couldn't ignore what was in front of me. Who would think that McDonald's had such a beautiful assortment of plants. I was upset with their pruning methods for their rushes in the spring. These roses were gorgeous. I hadn't noticed them earlier in the year. (We have so many things blooming they get overlooked) Here are just a few of the McDonald roses (I feel very conspicuous taking photos in the parking lot, but they were so pretty on a cold foggy morning).

Some are miniatures, some look like the new hardy shrubs, some may be teas. All were still lovely after the first frost of the year. It's too bad my camera doesn't really catch the differences of red to light pink. Wish I could grow such beauties (no mildew!).

Who would have thought about McDonalds having pretty rose bushes in their landscaping.

I really like the first photo with the rust colored leaves in the background
