Zuzu, I bet you are relieved that the pipe is on your neighbour's property!
Having a rose for each holiday is a great idea and I am really curious to see what you come up with for 'International Beer Day' - maybe Frothy?
Neal, that tired feeling usually only get's to me October/November when the fall clean-up starts!
As I mentioned in the July post, we always tend to post the 'pretties' - well here are some 'uglies'!
The most disappointing new roses this season .....
Deep Secret, Love and Peace - completely defoliated
Parfum de Grasse and Docteurs Massad - didn't loose all their leaves but almost
Quite a few minis have a reputation for not being that resistant - these two, new this season, confirm that
Diamond Eyes and Baby Jack - completely defoliated but have recovered although BJ is spotting again
Older roses which I keep because I just love the blooms
Purple Tiger - starting to recover and Iris Webb - looking much better
Close up nasties
Just part of growing roses?
Which roses are a disappointment for you??? Please share
