Good morning Sunday Letter friends,
It has been another blur of a week. I’ve been working on my next writing project and doing a little gardening. Unfortunately, the Japanese beetles are out in full force eating away on our knockout roses. Every morning and every evening just before sunset, I pick off as many as I can, drowning them in a bucket of soapy water.
I seriously think we will take out our roses this winter and plant a less disease prone variety, or something native. Our roses look absolutely gorgeous for about three weeks in early spring, and then become the bane of my existence.
I exaggerate a tad, but not really.
