>Keeping The Main Thing The Main Thing

>Now that the Rose Show frenzy is over, it’s back to what I love most, planting, growing and sharing roses.

I was digging holes last night after dark and planted some of the roses I recently purchased:

  1. 2 – “Rainbow Knockouts” on the side of the driveway next to the “Blushing Knockout”.
  2. 1 – The third and final “Social Climber” climbing rose.

The Rainbow and Blushing knockouts are planted in front of the 3 Social Climbers in the hope of creating a wall of Pink blooms outside the fence of our back garden.

We had about an hour of steady rain earlier in the day. Was glad to see it come. The cooler temps have also been nice. We have already seen some 90 degree days this Spring.

I now have 8 more holes to dig this week!!! My back already aches……
