First Rose

My First Rose of the Year! We’re usually 7-10 days behind the beautiful exploding vine of roses that my neighbors, two doors down, have planted along their walkway. The aphids stayed away this year, mostly distracted by the wild rose vine that sprung up last summer. There’s something about this year, I think I’m in for a good garden.

My tomatoes went in on Monday, and my Tomato Ladders came via fedex this morning. The dill is starting to take root, and my lavender pot is overflowing. Excellent.

    Planting marigolds around your rose bushes keeps the aphids away. I swear it works! And you don’t have to deal with pesticides.
