Oh, I have not been in the garden for a long time--spending my time on other things (and in other states...) -there are actually saplings growing up through my rose bushes. It's really something, and the heavy prune can't happen until winter.
And since I haven't been deadheading the roses, there aren't many blooms. At the same time, however,the flat of a spent bloom seems to make an excellent landing pad for a dragonfly. So I can keep my usual battle cry of "We are creating a healthy ecosystem!"
Perhaps I'll refer to the yard as a dragonfly refuge.
