I know, I know, it’s mostly more roses, but … we have a lot of roses.
Most of these were surprises, especially the gladiolas. Some of these roses came up on bushes that we had intended to remove, but once we cut down to the base, we neglected to dig them out. I’ve since decided they could stay in those locations… for now.
I love seeing the plants that are coming up on their own. There was little evidence of any of this last summer when we were in escrow.
Eventually I’ll have a plan for the yard, or at least a corner of the yard. For now, it’s all about maintenance. There is always so much to cut back, pull up, and train. If only I had some little people around that would lend a hand. (Note extreme sarcasm.)
