If those are your roses, and I'm sure that they are, you're doing everything right. I can't get a rose to grow for beans since I left Arizona. I'm thinking that I should try the new knockout roses that Bunny discussed recently at Bungalow. Do you know what variety yours are? What a lovely outdoor space you have!

Roses by any other name indeed. Sweet, fragrant, fragile, thorny but manageable.

They have that "touch me not" with a "just look at me" property yet one that cannot resist other than watching them afar or coming near to get enough of their sweet scented smell.

Enjoy your Spring as we are starting to rug up like sausage rolls down under.


Love your Bible quotes.
