Here are a couple pics of the roses in front of the house. One of my jobs tomorrow is to get rid of all the leaves with 'black spot' and spray them with Neem Oil. I also need to get the weed wacker out... and possibly the chain saw. Me and power tools? Wonderful.
The yellow rose is a climber... with nothing to climb, so it spreads out and requires constant clipping.
One of these days the Dahlias will start to bloom... that's right, I also have Dahlias.
And, of course, I've added something interesting to my layout
