The livin’ is easy

0906 Livin Easy

This rose can claim that, anyway, as Livin’ Easy is her name.  The roses are enjoying our cool summer thus far, although Julia Child has not quite popped and Elizabeth Taylor is still getting settled.  We brought Liz home in mid-May from Gensler Gardens.  Their roses are so healthy, and last year I never did any maintenance except a weak, twice-monthly feeding (a girl’s gotta eat!).  In late fall, DH put the tomato cages around the roses and stuffed them with shredded leaves.  They came through the winter beautifully.  As a budding (!) rosarian, I am very encouraged!
