Neal ...

Your photos are lovely. I think this is my last week of triple digit temps ... Hurray!

From the looks of things, I am going to have enough of a mild fall that I can have a good fall flush before the cold weather hits. All of the roses have sufficient foliage to support new growth, so when things cool off a bit, I'll clean them up and look forward to seeing blooms that are not totally fried.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Lyn, you reminded me of some that are indeed still perfectly clean of black spot, so that's a good point I tip my hat to you. . At the end of season I will be sure to take note of which ones have remained clean. 4 varieties come to mind that have been horribly overtaken by weeds and have had badly diminished air circulation. All newly planted in a new garden spot where weeds have been terrible. I've been tending that bed and was shocked to see how great the plants look! They are Nacogdoches, Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Buff Beauty, and Dortmund. Since they're all in the same bed, I wondered if that had something to do with it, but Graham Thomas and Lady of Shallot are close by and quite spotty, so I don't think so. I'll follow with some photos of the plants I discovered growing under the weeds Hilarious!

Oh, the weeds I pulled just before taking the photos! Hilarious! The poor roses could hardly be seen. And it stayed wet in there among all that foliage.

Gorgeous photos Mika! WC is so photogenic! I don't think my Molineux has had that many blooms in its entire life Hilarious!

Thanks, Neal, Porkpal. I think the trick with getting lots of bloom on DA roses, here at least, is to be generous with feeding and fast with deadheading.

Mika those are just stunning - really like the way you captured Lady of Shalott!
I only have two DA's and already deadhead quickly but must try with an extra feeding though. Maybe then....

Where does the time go? I meant to answer your question about Lemon Meringue's fragrance days ago, Sharlene, but the weather here has been perfect for staying outside all day every day. It may have a lemon scent, but I can't confirm that because it's growing at the back of a flower bed filled with thorny roses, so I never get near it until pruning time, and it doesn't have blooms then.

Mika, your exquisite Lady of Shalott photo reminds me of the boudoir paintings ladies once had hanging in their dressing rooms. I have one, in fact: a painting of kittens playing with a mirror and powder puff in front of a vase of roses.

Neal, isn't it magical the way roses respond so positively to weed clearing? The roses in the beds I've been clearing seem to be beaming with gratitude. In contrast to your weeds, which kept the ground wet, mine keep water from reaching the roses. Now that the weeds are gone, the roses are getting the full benefit of my watering efforts.

Today is Serendipity Day, so the Rose of the Day is Serendipity, a Buck shrub rose with pretty pale yellow and apricot blooms and an apple fragrance.

Wow Mika! Absolutely gorgeous! Hope you know I'm coveting right now, either your Austins, your ability to grow them, or your climate, but whatever it is, I'm green with envy! Rolling on the floor laughing

I know the feeling, Neal. I suddenly want some of the Austins I've never wanted. I passed on The Lady Gardener, for instance, because all of the pictures I'd seen of it on nursery websites were sort of blah. Now I want it!

Thanks, Neal, Zuzu. Smiling I'm afraid I don't have any special 'ability' as far as growing DAs is concerned. As I said before, I'm generous with food and try to deadhead asap. I don't think it's the climate because we grow a few DAs in France and they seem happy there too, although they need even more food because of the rubbishy soil we have in France (very sandy).
