The roses are blooming so abundantly this spring. I have had to spray for black spot due to all of the rain and moisture. It’s not something that I like to do, but it is certainly a must-do for roses in the SE when it’s moist. The beauty of these roses is so worth the time and effort that they take to care for!
So far this spring, the weekly rainshowers have resulted in a magnificent display of flowers of all sorts. The daylilies are just now opening up and the roses are still in full bloom. It’s been spectacular!
“Guacamole” hosta — what a perfect name; the lime green color just shouts out in the garden; it is absolutley one of my favorites!..
