We haven't seen the little guys for a couple days Buck. I guess maybe they headed south this week since the nights have gotten cooler.  My pretty red flowers are looking kind of sad, too, so I guess the frost has gotten to them also.

About that trumpet/cow itch vine, I remember on the news a few years ago that some local boys did some experimenting by boiling the flowers, thinking they would get a new high. They got high alright, they wound up in the hospital and almost died.

I remember my mother telling me that the flowers were poisonous and not to touch them. I didn't know why at the time. Mama knows best! She also told me not to play in the fire or you will wet the bed.  ???

Patty,
I saved a pic of that rose to my computer, than made a card for my wife. On the front it said" a beautiful Rose", with a pic of the rose. On the inside it said "for a beautiful woman." She liked that 8) 8). Told her it came from your place.

Richard, that is real nice.  ;)   I know your wife appreciated it. 

Burl, no I certainly am not a professional. I just love flowers, that's all. They give me lots of pleasure. I have a couple friends who have flower gardens and in the fall we dig up our excess flowers and give them to each other. One friend has a flower sale every spring, and I am one of her biggest fans. I load up my big ash suv with her pretty flowers and add them to my beds. Next year is hibiscus year...she said she had about 200 new starts to sell. I am already planning a new area where to plant them all.

We have alot of trouble with roses for some reason; or I should say I have alot of trouble with roses. The bugs adore them, and unless I spray them weekly with bug killer, they die. They also have trouble with our winters, so this year I am going to try a deep sawdust mulch to protect them Someone also told me to try a rose called "all root" (or something like that). I need to google it to find out where to purchase them. Tea roses do ok up here, but I prefer the full size roses.

That yellow one I photographed earlier, is blooming again this weekend.  smiley_daisy   She is a beauty.

Patty,

Everyone has a lot of trouble with roses.  I think you've done a wonderful job with them.  When you first posted the picture I almost comment because the leaves didn't have any spots on them, something I am unable to do.  I finally gave up on roses.  Impressed that you have done so well with them.  And worth the payoff, they are beautiful!

I did some googling around the net and I think my friend meant "own root" not all root. Seems most roses are grafted and have a virus in them so they can't take the extremes like a nonvirus rose. The only nonvirus roses are "own root" roses here in the states. I am going to try a few of the "own root" ones to see if they are hardier.

It's been a while since I messed about with roses, but I'll risk embarassing myself.

That first one looks like a Queen Elizabeth.  The third one could easily be a Mr. Lincoln, and the last one looks a bit like a Tropicana, but I don't remember them having a yellowish center.

Got the ONLY roses in the neighborhood, Burl....but it sure is nice for you to say so!  :)

I get loads of pleasure from the flowers. Yes they are hard work, but boy they are sure worth the effort. My balloon flowers are in bloom now also. smiley_daisy   Such a pretty little purple flower...

DanG I do not know what the roses were that I posted last summer...they did not make it through the winter.  :-\   I will check to see what the little orange one is when I get home this afternoon. It smells wonderful! That is the trouble with the roses you buy from the florist; they don't smell! But I digress....     

I bought the own root ones this year, so hopefully they will last through the winter.
