When we were in North Carolina, Marianne spotted some red rose bushes in several yards that she liked. She learned that they were called Knock Out roses and we decided to replace the Bonica roses that have not done well the last few years. We bought three Rosa 'Radrazz' at a local nursery in Frederick and planted them about 2 weeks ago.
We also decided to replace the border around the small bed with granite blocks. That went well, but made the walkway look like it needed work, so this past weekend the walkway was pulled up and relaid.
