HI GANG, I'm back!  And I just wanted to let you know that I have reported the spam/advertising here.  

On the other front, my roses have taken a last fling in November.  All are in bloom; one is an antique miniature everbloom that has taken a deep breath, one is a determinate tea and one is an indeterminate tea (climber with nothing to climb on...LOL).  

Leaves are beginning to turn here in the Midsouth.  I cooked out and got sunburned cheeks on Nov. 3, how cool is that?  But down here, we never entirely lose our tan lines!

I'm in Chicago, and *I* still have roses!!  I have Knockouts.  The pink and the bi-color gave up late october, but the red still has a dozen blooms!!  I looked at it this morning, after a bunch of nights in the high 20's(F), and a couple very windy days.  Altho all the leaves have finally fallen, the blooms persist.  Tonight may do them in tho.  It's still near 60, at 8:25 pm CST, but there is a driving rain and gusty wind.

My roses are blooming too. September Morning (white floribunda) is going crazy, the climber is doing well, and the other floribundas have a few blooms or buds. The weather has stayed warm but no really hot weather since the first 2 weeks of Sept (which were miserable and took a toll on the roses). I'm in San Diego, we don't lose our tan lines here either LOL. I'm trying to get my winter garden in but its been too hot in the direct sun so I can only dig in the mornings.

Its always a challenge to prune my roses here because they *could* keep blooming year 'round if I didn't prune and fertilized them instead. I think that when this series of blooms finishes I'll let them go to hips and cut back on watering so they'll start going dormant. We're supposed to prune in January here.

Had to pop in and comment. I live in Texas and normally I can water my roses out front semi regularly even in drought conditions and get blooms most of the summer, but this year, nada, I don't think I got any blooms at all over the summer on any of my 4 bushes, but right now, 2 of them are FULL!
