Rosa 'Marilyn Monroe':
Two weeks ago, 'Marilyn Monroe' was completely defoliated from black spot. Her recovery was unexpectedly quick.
Also unexpected, I thought the Aloes were done until fall, but here is 'Cynthia Giddy', and my variegated x noblis has a first-ever spike emerging as well, yet to be photographed.
Aloe 'Cynthia Giddy':
Even more unexpected, though it should not have been: when baseboard gets boring, there's always the wall to chew on.
Wall-chewing will make you tired. Lay down and look adorably cute for a while.
Lick your brother, and make him look even cuter.
