  9. Les, you are correct.

    Sweet Bay, I am happy that the Japanese beetles are gone. They were not too bad this year.

  10. I like them all. I think I'm going to but a bare root the Autumn, probably Rosa Moyesii 'Geranium', apparently the hips are fantastic,flagon shaped.

  12. Absolutely beautiful! As each photo opened on my screen, I kept thinking..."That's my favorite! No, that one is....no, that one!" I guess I'll just have to love them all!

  15. Phillip, lovely photos. I hope we get a few blooms in September. The Japanese beetles will be gone about the middle of the month. Doesn't leave much time for them to bloom before it frosts.
