Thanks Katy. They do look so different. Was still picking Japanese beetles off my roses today. Moved some plants and got rid of a few that had grown out of control today. We really need some rain. They are saying maybe Sunday. 🤷♀️ @gjones
You’re welcome! We read that the beetles lay their eggs in the soil so does that mean you’ll have them again next year? I hope not. It was windy but nice and warm today. Supposed to be 32C tomorrow but them cools down for the next few days. It has been such a busy few days and we still have lots to do before first frost arrives. I’m getting pooped out but have to keep going.
Yes unfortunately they will be here every year. This year was the worst though. We got hundreds with our trap and had our lawn sprayed so I hope that helps. Try to pace yourself Katy so you don’t get sick. 🙏🥰
Thanks so very much all you lovely ladies. I am so pleased with this rose. Have had so many blooms for the first year. 😍😍 @gjones @ShelleySnyder. @KOutdoors @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom @angiecrazycatlady
I imagined the flower size in my mind then I actually looked at them. They are just 31/2 to 4 inches Cherie. It is a new plant this year so I have not have many blooms at once. I have 2 now. 😁 @cheriej
It was well over 100. Imagine the scent. She was so sweet and she had just lost her husband of 60 years. She seemed to know what she was doing and I struck up a conversation with her. She was very helpful. She has a few roses already in her cart. Poor dear must be lost without her hubby. 😢 @kez001uk
