Terri, 'not trying to be nosy, but you stated you lived in a northern state for some time and grew roses there, and now you're in Texas growing roses ? That's interesting to me, because except for small excepts, I know virtually nothing of the problems those in other climates face, but surely it couldn't be much worse than southeast Texas, with the high humidity and usually hot summers. I guess we caught a break this year (so far...!), as it's rained several times, really good, long rains.

Well, true. But each area comes with it's own pro's and con's when growing roses. In the Chicago area summers can be just as hot and humid as here in NE Texas. But in Chicago we had some really cold winters while I was there. Some of my roses heaved out of the ground and needed replanting. Then we had a flood and my back rose hedge was under water (some of it sewer water--UGH). Different set of insects. Different soil. The summer I moved down from Chicago to Texas was so cool that most of my tomatoes did not set fruit. And I've never had more trouble with bunnies than in that Chicago area neighborhood! No predation asside from my late crazy red heeler. But the sheer volume of bugs here in NE Texas is quite noticable, to put it mildly! ☺
