Hi & welcome! I'm totally jellie of your rocks - especially the pretty pink ones! There are no rocks in the ground here.

Moving the rocks that are over the root area could help let more air into the soil. It's always a good idea with roses to remove any parts that look questionable, and move the debris away from the bush. This would look better if you trim last years' stems near the soil level, and snip off any abnormal looking leaves. Then you'll also be able to instantly determine if any new foliage anomalies occur.

I would remove the rocks away from the base, those leaves may be brown because they are getting reflection off the heated rocks. Give it a layer of compost instead and deep watering.

Also all of those rocks were found by either me or my daughter. From our local beaches.

Seven of your canes appear to have some canker you will want to trim off/keep an eye on as that can spread and eventually kill your little bush. If you see it spreading down, you will want to prune it off to an all green spot, disinfecting your pruners between each cut so it doesn't continue to spread.
