> Well, lots of rebloom with our warm California December.  All the Byers
things
> (especially Stingray), Perfect Couple, Best Bet, a pathetic CeeCee,
Wearing
> Rubies, Cast of Characters, Double Vision (again!, but as always a weak
> stalk), Timescape (a lovely surprise; one of my old favorites, it never
> rebloomed for me before.  Large, ruffled lavender and white blend).
Without a

> I was over a month behind on the maintenance in my garden, then two weeks
ago
> I broke my right thumb.  Finally this week I went out one-handed to clean
up
> my year 2000 acquisitions bed, the most neglected of the lot.  Hideous
> yellow-and-brown leaves due to nesting aphids (farmed by ants).  Lots of
> stripping and clipping, now it looks healthy although somewhat sparser.
Of my
> 5 louisianas in that bed, four were filthy with rust fungus.  For some
reason,
> Garnet Storm Dancer (with three rebloom stalks, disappointingly tiny
flowers)
> was clean.  Pulled up or clipped off every affected leaf.  Sprayed the
worst
> of the aphid pockets with insecticidal soap.  Spread out 10 lbs. of Bayer
Rose
> Care fertilizer (with the systemic insecticide that discourages the
aphids).
> Watered it in a bit.  Put Fung-away and malathion together and heavily
sprayed
> the whole bed.  I've been lucky; one dot (literally) of leaf spot in the
whole
> bed.
>
> I really need to line out the seedlings I planted last spring; the 3" deep
> trays don't give them much of a chance.  The healthiest tray right now
looks
> like Double Dribble x (SA luminata seedling).  Only a half- dozen 5" fans
> (they can't grow big in the trays), but healthy-looking.  Stage Lights x
(the
> same seedling) has a dozen of the tiniest fan-sprouts of all.  One cross
made
> onto both Best Bet and its child CeeCee proves Best Bet genes to be more
> robust, at least in my climate.  I now have 2 nice seed pods ripening on
my
> wild SA reblooming plicata seedling, and the reverse cross onto Double
Vision
> also produced two smaller pods, attractively stained red-purple.

> I actually had a little help in the garden today, so we also planted a
> trailing Camelia and a line of Irish moss  Always wanted to try that
stuff,
> thought it would look great between stepping stones and along shady edges.
> Let's see if it lives.  A couple of weeks ago we moved two of our
bouganvillas
> outside the fence.  My wife loves them, weekly trimming the rapid growth
with
> 2" thorns was not my favorite task.  We added an arbor for our
hardenbergia;

the

year,
> it looks naked now.  I love creating a beautiful garden, all our visitors
are
> surprised to see the results of our landscaping efforts.  I just wish it
> wouldn't take 10 years for the trees to mature.  The Fuji apples (a dozen
or
> so) are ripe now, and delicious.
