And a Happy 4th of July to you. I wanted to share my 'rose' moment with you. Some of you know that I have just moved into a new house with no garden but some woods. Well I have just planted my first rose!!! I am ecstatic!! Naturally it was climbing Iceberg :-) I have three more Icebergs to plant when the beds are ready - two are the shrub form. I also have the white Majic Carpet which I will plant today. Hopefully this is my last move and at my age I surely want it to be :-)

I'm glad that you finally have a place to call "yours". There's nothing like realizing that dream, and being able to mold and shape the property to your own vision. I'm sure your gardens will be lovely!

Check out some hybrid musks for those shady spots. Roses can grow just about everywhere!

sunflower where have you been? Missed your posts lately. Yes, I need some tough roses for a warm south/west wind and know that rugosas are the only way to go for that postion. Will hopefully find some and get the beds ready for fall/winter/spring planting.

Louisa, It sounds like you are settling in nicely to your new home. I have Iceberg too! One of my favorites. You know it the only rose the Nat'l Rose Association rates a 10! And for good reason. It takes a liking and keeps on ticking. And the scent is wonderful too.

I agree Mich and a good morning to you :-) Right now I'm busy picking off the Japanese beetles and although they have made a mess of the flowers, something is making a worse mess of the leaves. But I'm sticking to picking off the large bugs and spraying with soap and water for the other devils. I think it's working! Another great rose, which worked remarkably well in the humidity here is Graham Thomas - it grew so fast and large in my last garden that it could easily have been used for a climber. I miss it!!!
