Jan-One more group to join-my "Sage Gardening Tips" I have a discussion that tells what products that i use-one very important one is the solution to the "Black spot" It is an organic spray that takes care of diseases, insects, mites and anything that attacks the rose leaves. I have been using it gor 4 years and as you can see in some of my photos-the leaves are green and healthy. They are worth if-if only for the sweet memories.
Daddieo aka Jim also writes some wonderful posts on it as do others.
Thanks Jan for joining my "Handicap Gardening" group

Neat that you know someone in this little town--now you know 2! Talihina is in sore need of garden, especially flowers. You mostly only see flowers when the grass weeeds bloom. I've spent this spring/summer just with privet bushes, about 200 of them, watering and weeding. They are the best bushes, they love attention and have such individual personalities! :D
Hi Jann I just got in from outside. I have been playing in the dirt digging trenches to lay down drip irrigation pipe to my trees. I still have 3 more to do. I got to get some lunch. You have some great Pictures.
"Hi Shelley. Glad you asked. Hope you can grow these. That one is Marshmallow, the old fashioned large flowered variety. It actually has the faintest touch of pink in the center of all those skirts. . ."
