There are three rose bushes out by our mailbox. The yellow knock out rose was already here and blooming when we moved here, the other two, a red and a pink, I planted last spring. This weekend was really too cool to plant my garden. The soil temperature is right at 55 degrees so I figured I'd give it another week or two and mulch my roses instead.
Here's a before and after!
This pretty sunny yellow knockout rose blooms a beautiful lemon yellow and then in a day or so, the blooms fade to a lovely ivory cream color. I just love her!
The red roses will be busting out any day now!
These are a beautiful peppermint pink and white.
A little rose food and fertilizer and some fresh mulch should be all they need to have a blooming good summer!
