You know that I have been on-the-go this year and I was unsure how my roses would fare without my constant attention.
Yep, they're fine.
Just look at this magnificent swath of Eden climbers that I found blooming as I found them when I got home. Love love love. Yes, roses need to be watered from the ground (don't let their leaves get wet from a sprinkler) and fertilizer and bug spray is important. But boy oh boy, how could anything seem like too much work when the results are like this.
May you remember to stop and smell the roses.
