Sunny Day

Here are a few more garden shots, now that the sun is shining. I also had to add some rocks to the beds to keep the dog from laying on the new plants.

i had moldy roses too. i had one huge one that flowered once a season. i cut it all the way back last year after flowering. this year it looks great so far. no powdery mildew. i think that part of the problem comes from them being on a trellis with little air circulation. it was painful to cut the rose back so much, but in the end it looks much better.

thanks, I wasn't sure if that was possible since it's so old - we want to paint the house, but I have been thinking that meant killing the roses (which are dying anyway.) Last year I fertilized and sprayed and they did a little better for a little while. This year I'm going to try cornmeal on the ground and spraying with fat-free milk/water mix. Who knows. If that doesn't work, I'll cut them back, paint the house, and hope they grow back!

Are those yellow azaleas in that last shot? What a lovely color!
