🌹🌂 ☔#redroseintherain 🌂☔🌹 light patches of rain here..not complaining perfect for harvesting crops..it was 78 degrees at 6a this morning here! In Louisiana it's a diff kind of hot with the extreme humidity!! XOXO
@buzzygems here are a few things I do when caring for my 🌹*water my roses w/water mixed with miracle grow every other day during 🔥 summer months, only store bought product i use on my 🌹 *use small brim 🐟 as fertilizer, burry 1 🐟 per 🌹*save all ☕ ground, let ground dry & put 1 C per rose bush * also use epson salt 1/2 C per 🌹 bush..these are a few organic 🌹 foods i use.
@buzzygems when it isn't extremely 🔥 i let my 🌹 beds thrive by giving them a good soaking 1x/wk & just sprinkling them ea day, I find watering 🌹 during the evening is best. Roses soak up h20 perk up after a warm day & are ready for the next days 🌞 ..hope this helps!! XX 🌹
#davidaustin-maidmarionrose #davidaustinroses #rose-maidmarion in between cleaning up the mess in my yard, I'm collecting cuttings from all of my roses, just in case we ever get another storm that destroys my rose garden. I stressed sooo much 😨 during the storm..as we all know growing roses, flowers & veg gardens takes lots of time & work !! *would have been sooo incredibly bummed if I'd lost my rose garden XOXO
#pinkrosesintherain soon as I'd rinsed the sand off of my roses, flowers & vegetable garden, soil here is very sandy & will burn my petals & vegetables once the 🌞 hits them....here comes the 🌧 again 😥 XOXO
🏡#longstemrose 🏡 my grafted long stem 🌹 🙏 grateful to mother nature that the rains have stopped & Mr. 🌞 is out!!! My girls & I are 🏡!!!! 💃 #thereisnoplacelikehome grateful to fmly for giving us shelter from tropical storm Barry 💓 sooo happy to be home I could literally 💋 the ground! Our home isn't in danger of rising bayou, only we might get a few swamp creatures visiting our yard due to the water level of the bayou being soo high #gratefulrose XOXO
@lilybee we'll be very careful Sue 😘 the girls know the danger as well as the beauty of the bayou. I ((( reinforced ))) the dangerous & they know not to go near the water or too far from my back deck until the water recedes. X
@cyndi thk u ..X most of my roses are looking bad after the rains. I have sandy soil here & when we have heavy rains it gets sand on all my petals & my veg plants. I have to hose them off or they'll look like s**t !!🙊🙈 🙈 sand spots on the petals,leaves & produce!! X
It's been 🌧 for hrs here, much needed rain after a weekend of 99 degree temps with a heat index of 116. Humidity is unbearable at times here in Louisiana & summer has just begun. #rose #pinkrose @BillWatson are you able to see the pic now?
