It's so pretty! It was so worth the wait! I am so pleased that we were able to rescue this rose bush and that it is actually blooming!
Here's a closeup of one of the roses. When opened, it's much lighter than the deep red of the bud.
Isn't it gorgeous how many blooms it has? It is quite beautiful! I was hoping for some blooms but this is more than I expected. What an amazing surprise!
I did notice one thing that concerned me about the rose bush. On some of the leaves, there were blackspots and the leaves were turning yellow. I know that some roses are susceptible to blackspots. For your rose growers out there, do you have an organic method of getting rid of this? I read that manure tea helps, have you tried that?
