Yes you have the rose root stock coming up now. I have a couple of those
myself. I had a David Austin rose whose name escapes me and a pretty
"Betty Boop" rose in one corner of the front garden, they both died off
last summer. The sprinklers had a malfunction in the middle of a major
heat wave and we didn't see it until too late. But this spring I'm
getting suckers from those spots with the single red rose flower.
They're attractive in their own way but I'll pull them out. Maybe this
fall I'll replant "Betty Boop", I really liked that one.
I love the big fluffy David Austin roses but I've come to the conclusion
they aren't really suited for here. They all want to be climbers, and
the rose stems are very thin so the roses just flop over. I do have one
that stays as a bush but it's so incredibly thorny I can't get anywhere
near it without leaking blood. 
Blooming now are roses, coreopsis, gaillardia, a few daylilies,
geranium, salvias, buckwheat, erisymum, and some kind of annual silene.
Gophers are doing their best to wipe out the front garden and the
rabbits are devastating my yellow beans (but not the green ones...go
figure). It's going to be the year of the critters, I guess.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] anyone still around.. I got a question

I live in the midwest, I am not supposed to have 98 degree weather in
beginning of June!.... Heck, we shouldn't have that kinda heat period!
We are expecting storms again tonight... and cooling off for a few days,
will welcome the 70's again.... But that has been the trend here,
heat, nasty storms, rain and cool off for a day, then heat up
My roses have gone wild.  I am thinking they got hurt over the winter
and the
root stock has taken over.  I had a nice yellow climbing rose (name
escapes me
right now)... but it is now red!.... I got another one the exact same
coming up in the middle of a flower bed.  I have no clue how it got
cause I would never have planted it there and don't remember a rose
either!.... and another one on the side of the house has also taken over
that same red color.. and I know it was a peach color last year.....
duh, what
is going on here!

Record-breaking heat here today and tomorrow, and air quality alerts
too. After cool last week, and predicted cool again next week. Crazy! 
After an exceptionally wet spring, we are drying out in this yeat -
is more like it.  Everything is very lush - just hope we don't have
hot, dry summer like last year.
