Last push of the season, snipped after 2 frosty mornings. The bloom looks a bit ragged, but the deep lemony fragrance of my little Intrigue rose is well worth enjoying as long as possible!

I've learned to appreciate scent over bloom color, most of the time.

In my Seattle house I had a commercial building on the north side of the property. It was a 12 -15' cinder block wall and faced south. Between the house and next to the wall was a fragrant yellow rose. There were years when this rose bloomed all year long. Heat from the wall and protection from the buildings gave it a great location. You can see the rose behind the sunflowers. Also, a former partner.

Oh, a very happy little environ for a rose in the PNW!

@tinkercreek Actually, the biggest problem here is the black spot on the leaves. There are roses that are immune. Funny, when we renovated the house I moved a lot of roses. Two, moved to a corner between some trees became climbers. They don't have the black spot problem as there are no leaves close to the ground.

I've always stuck with organics, soap & neem oil, but still always have blackspot. Next season I'll get systemic treatment, have heard there are now no-harm offerings.

@tinkercreek Have tried some with limited results. Problem is the fungus is on the dirt/mulch at the base of the rose. rain splashes it up to the lower leaves and it spreads from there. Having a drip irrigation helps.

I used to keep up with the Portland weather, and was surprised that a good rule pf thumb was 10 degrees warmer than here in the winter and 10 degrees cooler in the summer. We've already had killing freezes here, I drug all my tender plants into the hot tub area and they made it. A couple I was going to dig and pot are still in the yard, so I'll have to wait until they are totally dormant before I dig them.

Posted by bigpawbulletsDay 7. Nest is getting a bit crowded. Temps are rising and sunny wx. Ground is turned over in garden beds close by her nest so worm hunting is optimal.

Posted by FernappleIn the next village, the houses have a stream running past their front door, so not much front garden.

Posted by bigpawbulletsSo: Question for the gardners/naturalists here: Is this typical sparrow behavior?

Posted by bigpawbulletsDay 4: Filling up the nest. Taking naps between feedings. Everyone is looking pretty healthy. Any name suggestions?
