I trimmed and dead headed my roses tonight.  To date I have about 15 rose bushes.  A beautiful pink shrub rose in the front that’s going gangbusters with it’s double blooms of soft baby pink flowers the size of a tennis ball.  Too bad they turn just a few days after they bloom.

Also in front I have a climbing red Blaze that we purchased at Walmart last spring.  Our house is two stories and it’s almost past the first story.  I can’t have it climbing up the front of the house so I keep it topped off.  It’s gorgeous with it’s bright red flowers.

The rest of my flowers are standard shrub roses but they are loaded with blooms till at least the first frost.  Last fall they bloomed almost through November.

The Rose of Sharon is a story and a half and about 8 feet wide.  It’s loaded with blooms and the hummingbirds love it!

Roses are my favorite flower not only because they are beautiful but because they are one of the easiest flowers to grow.  You just dig a hole and plant!  How easy can it get!
