Saying Goodbye.


These are Marianne's last blooms of the year. Fare the well, ARDgoldeneyes! I hope that next year you'll bloom in dry weather!

I think that Scepter'd Isle is finally starting to edge out Heritage in my mind. It's been in the mid-80s lately, and Heritage cannot stand up to the heat.

For the record, these are the Austin roses I've grown that can take direct sun and 80+degree temperatures without shriveling up their flowers like used Kleenex:

Darcey Bussell
Princess Alexandra of Kent
Lady Emma Hamilton
Scepter'd Isle
Crown Princess Margareta
Winchester Cathedral

It's not like I'm living in Texas...jeez.
