It was a tough summer for roses because of the drought and the Japanese Beetles. Beetles are gone and we've had some really nice rain falls. A few nights of below freezing but not a hard freeze.
This week: four rose bushes are blooming. Not a huge amount and not especially perfect flowers BUT BLOOMING! A beautiful sight for sure BUT - and there it is again, CRAZY, crazy for lovin' you! But, I'm ready for a Midwest Nor'easter.
I would have gladly been the target of the recent Eastern snow storm (I know - I know) BUT retirees can sit at home and enjoy big snows.
