First Rose of Summer

Mom and Bro 1 are the real gardeners in the family, and they both have a knack for roses.

I have a couple of scrawny specimens which have finally accepted my "no sissies" gardening creed. I'll give them the occasional dusting if something vicious is attacking; other than that, I just don't believe in pampering roses. It just encourages dependency and hypochondria. As a result, my roses don't produce much and usually look like they're waiting for triage.

Here is Bro 1's First Rose of Summer, with glossy, unmunched leaves. Good show.
