  5. Betsy, you're in a cold climate..

    1. I do nothing to them. ... the really do live up to their name. i don't even feed them! ha.
      I wonder what would happen if I did!? I bet I've had them 10 years now...and I have cut them back, which I think makes them bloom more. I don't cover them in the winter, either.

  12. What a glorious shade of pale pink. They remind me of roses that bloomed all along the side of our driveway when I was a child, but they were called Princess Margaret.
