When I last left off, I had vigorously pruned and then potted five rose bushes that Nikki was generous enough to give me. They took a little while to settle in, but are now giving off new shoots and budding.
Portland from Glendora rosebuds waiting to bloom. How apropos! A rose named after my hometown (Good old PDX, not Glendora.) and in my favorite shade of fuchsia.
Snowbird waiting too.
And while the roses aren't all bushy yet, they've come a long way since their poor limbs were pruned.
Other garden updates.
