Rose problem

Not sure if this is right place, please advise me if I should post elsewhere.

I am desperate. My rose bush has some roses turning brown and just flopping over and dying, yet others on the same bush look good. Any ideas? insects?? fungi? Why wouldn't all of them do this?? I am in foggy San Francisco.

Can you post a photo.

What has the weather been like? Hot and sunny? Foggy and cool and overcast? Rainy?

Does the branch with the brown flowers also have brown leaves? Are the "bad" branches broken or cracked or damaged down at the base?

Have you sprayed the rose with anything, or have you sprayed anything like Round Up near the rose?

Is the rose getting regular water?

Have you given the rose any fertilizer just recently?
