Well, there are rewards for finally getting into the garden for only about the third time this summer (long story)...
My DH and I spent about 2 hours in one area, just cutting back flowering plants that had gone to seed, weeding, etc. It was a jungle. I cut off some huge hollyhock branches that were covered with seed pods. Inside of the hollyhock mess, to my delight, was Rosette DeLizy, blooming away. Before I cut the 10 ft tall finished hollyhock stalks you could hardly see her. She got NO care all summer, except for some automatic watering. Happy and healthy none-the-less. I LOVE tea roses!
