    what a wonderful sight, such a pretty bush.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Beautiful. In Phoenix I'm excited when my bush has one rose on it.

    Lovely! Some of my climbers don't look like they made it through this winter. I have yet to see any leaf buds.

    Our roses have nice green leaves, until the bugs start eating them. Weather has turned cooler around here this week. Won't be long until it is so hot and humid I can't stand it.

    My knockout roses have really taken off since being trimmed back and warm weather arriving. They are extremely hardy, water tolerant and so easy to care for. You don't have to do a lot of clipping or special care. They are a great rose to grow.

    I'm in mid Illinois. Our red bud is in bloom, our lilac bush is busting out with blooms, our Bradford pear is blooming, and our Dogwood is starting to bloom. Spring is here!!!

    They are Knockout roses like texassunshine described. Don't do anything to them, they deadhead themselves, just trim a little is all.
