Thank you, Margie ... I tip my hat to you.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Final Choice-Back Deck Roses: Well, here is the final (almost) listing of roses to be/are placed on the back Patio deck. Although I have a Pink, Red(2), Yellow, White and a Mixed rose bed(s), and Cutting roses in the unheated greenhouse, ( mostly "Olympiad") I want the pleasure of beautiful roses right on the back deck where we spend most of our hours when not swimming next door in the ocean. Note, most of these roses are in 5-gallon camoflagued pots, "Drag & Drop" because they are tender, and will have to be topped up and kept in the greenhouse over winter. Final lineup, no specific order or rating:

"Charlotte"
"Mary Rose"
"Darcy Bussell"
"Eglantyne"
Above four, all DA roses. "Tissue paper" roses. Very tender.

"Peace"
"Glowing Peace"
"Chicago Peace"
Three of the "Peace" Sisters, all very capable of being "Stunning"!

"Caribia" nee" Harry Wheatcroft", 2 pots two in each. (Stunning)
"Julia Child" (New to me)
"Rainbow Niagara" (Stunning and virtually unknown, disease free)
"Broceliande" (Gorgeous striper)
"Folklore" ( Quite elegant)
"Intrigue" (Sounds like a nice red)
"Neil Diamond" (Can be great, but no two blooms the same, not hardy here, etc.)
"Love" ( Always a sensational rose sight), Red, with silver undersides. So that's it for the ambience on our back deck, with the addition of a pail of Oriental Lillies, probably "Stargazer". The deck railings have hanging long pots, filled/or to be filled with Herbs, (thyme, rosemary, leaf cilantro(Calipso), Mexican Coriander, fern leaf dill, etc. as does the front deck nearest the kitchen, with Basil and Parsley. Back deck also has a pail of Garlic Chives, kept from year to year. Still have to pick up Begonias for the small little coffee tables. Cheers! Hmmmmm? I have an early blooming Clematis, "Ms. Bateman" (can plant her out when bloom is finished). Unfortunately, of the eight GF. "Sunshine Daydream" shipped to a local Nursery, and then to me, over a nine day journey in early April from the West coast to the east, by truck, I am certain were frozen! Only one showing any life. Very upsetting, but hey, that's rose gardening! Actually, the Nursery should have refused them upon delivery! We are both waiting to collaborate results.

A beautiful selection of roses you have there to admire in a lovely setting. I like the fact the ocean is nearby - if you get hot....... you can jump right in - LOL

I didn't notice the wildlife in the last photo until I uploaded it just now. Does anyone know what they are ?



Look like immature katydids--with those legs and stripped antennae

Lyn, maybe you could send your photo over to the "Insect & Bug ID Forum"

Thank you, Dirt. I tip my hat to you.

Margie, that's a good suggestion. I am not going to have much computer time for the next few days. The curculios have arrived in hoards. It's time to dis-bud the garden ... Sighing!
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.
