A Bit Quiet Lately.....

A Bit Quiet Lately.....

Post by neptune on 26th March 2014, 21:37

Its been a bit quiet on the forum lately and I was wondering what everyone was doing..........

As for me, wifey and I just got back from Bali after 2 weeks in Bali for a short break as she works very hard in the hospital.
There was a downside of going when we did. My timing to do a summer prune to get ready for the Autumn State Championships on Mother's day is out of whack by over a week.
So now I pray for warm weather about 3 weeks before Mothers Day to help force the growth for me. If not, I may need to help with force feeding to help it along a bit and it doesn't help when wifey and I are going back overseas about the 10th April for another couple of weeks. Might not be our year as follow up Champions.......

So what are our fellow rosarians doing right now.....

Yes I have noticed how everyone seems to have "left town" recently. I must say my roses have never looked better, most in full bloom. Amazing! I did give them a lot of water towards the end of summer when the ground really dried out. However I think a lot of the credit goes to what I have learnt here from many learned people, so I thank you. Stand outs at the moment are Best Friend, Queen Adelaide and Joy of Life.
Ah the rain overnight and today has been a blessing (even though I had to cut my golf today), nice gentle soaking rain, which we haven't seen for so long.

With this dry weather the roses are so so too, now we are having a real soaking with a weeks worth of rain. It's a nice change.

Dannyboy if I remember correctly I think you have Summer Fragrance, if so, how are you finding it? I am thinking of buying it...
Happy roses
