Just a quick update on my roses. After a couple of gorgeous blooms my plants are mostly leaves for the time being with a rare bud once in a while. At this point with it being near a 100 degrees out I'll be thrilled if all my plants make it through the unyielding heat of summer. For the exception of 4 rose bushes that stay out in full sun, I have pulled the rest into the shade and they seem happier here. It was a nice surprise yesterday morning to see one of my magenta pink roses finally grew a bud and bloomed! I'll try to get a picture tomorrow morning before work.
