The October Cool Down Is Here!
Not only are my winter veggies thriving, roses that sulked in the record-breaking heat this summer are sighing with relief and budding and blooming. What a joy to see and smell blossoms on 'Baronne Prevost', Fairmount Cemetery treasures "Jo An's Pink Perpetual" and "Fairmount Proserpine", my own hybrids 'Sarasota Spice' and 'Gold Blush' (both sold by The Antique Rose Emporium in Texas), 'Teasing Georgia', 'Mme. Antoine Marie', "Maggie", 'Cramoisi Superieur', 'Archduke Charles', R. bracteata, 'Marechal Neil', 'Belinda's Dream', 'Duchesse de Brabant', and 'Graham Thomas'. John
