Garden journal entry


It's sunnier up there
August 11, 2009. Almost two years ago, I triumphantly announced the arrival of a new era in rose-tending at our Lush Gardens: the planting of a New Dawn rose. But last year, this old stand-by climber was overshadowed by three additional roses that made their entry that spring: Citrus Splash, Black Cherry, and Pink Knockout. While those bloomed their heads off in a sunny garden area, New Dawn was less forthcoming with flowers, probably because it receives only part-day sun. It also failed to climb up the arbor I had so thoughtfully provided for its benefit. We're now well into another season, and finally there's some climbing going on - New Dawn has reached near the top of the arbor - up, up, toward the sky!
