Some Ramblings;

September has shown some cooler night time temperatures into the 60's which brings about a growth change in many roses. We are seeing new growth and flowering from plants that have been somewhat shy about offering more than a few blooms. Then there are varieties such as Bemuda's Anna Olivier that ignores the summer heat and has become a non-stop prolific bloomer. The start of the month saw a combination of high day time temperatures and high humidity, not the best working weather. My wife and I both felt those first several weeks were the most uncomfortable of the summer.

This month also presented hurricane Dorian. What started out with projections showing us in the center of it at one point , became a non event. We did enjoy some mild breezes for several days as a result.

World Federation of Rose Societies issued a newsletter this month. It can be found under the download section at this link. The latest newsletter contains some 36 pages of interesting articles. The global perspective it offers is very interesting.
