Our Grand Rose of Sharon, and Her Attendants

Our beautiful lady has been showing off for four months now. Days shorten, evenings cool off, and still she (and her attendant bees!) glitters. All these, and more, from one bush.

    Nice! (Sorry for my delay…)
    HOLD ON TO THOSE BEAUTIES while you can.
    We don’t know if it’s because we did some serious pruning in the spring, or what, but these have been showing off since June, and it’s almost October here in New England, and 3x the number of blooms. Attendant bees still pretty wired, too! Enjoy the roses and azaleas. Our azaleas bloom once and I killed off a few azalea bushes by OVER fertilizing them!
