Not A Pretty Sight

N IS FOR?

                                                                                                                                
'NEW DAWN' ~ a most nifty climbing rose which was introduced in 1930. Here she is in flower in the garden at the end of June, whilst her foliage still looked rather natty. Sadly as the year progressed her leaves began to look rather nasty and they reached a nadir as the nuisance of blackspot took its nefarious hold. Nip over to ABC Wednesday for more news on the letter N.

  5. Lovely rose. Alot of mine went down with blackspot too - not much that can be done about it is there?

  6. Very lovely and fragile.

    I have a rose bush I'm trying to nurse back to life...it has a few new green shoots, so I'm hopeful.

  10. How sad that your lovely rose has the plague. She does still look pretty here though.
