We've had more rain in the past three weeks than the last three years. We really needed it, but it didn't have to fall all at once. My driveway is now across the street.
Forty roses have survived the summer heat and humidity, and not the ones I expected. They're mostly Hybrid Teas and David Austins. Weird, huh? And all but 2 are from Heirloom Roses.
Most of the climbers are happy. Love Song is doing great and Jasmina loves it here.
I'm not at all happy with Hortico. It took a month to get an answer- no refund, but they agreed to send to send replacements this fall. So now I've sent 3 emails to remind them and (surprise! surprise!) no reply. I will never order from them again,nor recommend them.
I stumbled upon a new nursery, Angel Gardens. Well, new to me anyway. I don't know how I missed her before. I placed an order and Pam called the next day! She suggested a few different roses and promptly shipped them. They dropped their all leaves but that happens.
Little blooms on Souvenir de la Malmaison and Monsieur Tiller.
