Roses In the Rain

Just planted 10 bareroot roses from Roses of Yesterday & Today in the driving rain this afternoon, filling in the last gaps in our bed of roses. The roses we planted last year were winter-pruned two weeks ago and are mostly dormant right now.
Click here for more photos of our rose garden. The bulk are Hybrid Tea roses, but we have quite a few of David Austin's 'English Roses,' a smattering of Floribundas and even a relatively new Grandiflora, Sundance (2004).

Kiwis Are In!

Eight females and two males, all 3 years old already! We'd like to thank Bernhardt and the entire Redwood Nursery family for giving us a great deal after tracking them down and delivering them to us in such good condition. We'll be pruning them this week, and we're excited for them to break dormancy this spring and get growing in their new sunny home.
