Slowly, they are starting to bloom. I really enjoy the few that begin the season. Same old roses, new photos.

Beautiful blooms as always Kathy! Your plants are always so healthy looking. I assume you spray?

Beth, I stopped spraying 3 years ago. The most amazing thing happened. The ladybugs took over and ate the aphids. Of course, I do some spraying of water to wash the worst infestations off. But last summer I was amazed at how little trouble I had with aphids. Right now, I have several ladybugs on each rose. I feel terribly guilty at how many I had killed in years past with my two spring sprays.
I have also been able to manage the fungus although my newest Summer Fashion is covered right now. I will cut it off when it finally warms up. I was never able to control pw anyway.

I would think I'd died and gone to heaven if my Angel Face ever looked like that!
