I have climbing roses in my garden, but they need help with their climbing. I was a little late this year and it rained, so they become a pitiful group of roses hanging down. Yesterday I pulled myself together and went to work with them. I wore my gardening gloves, and intertwined them on the supports. They fought every inch of the way with their thorns, but with the help of string I managed to more or less tie them in an upright position. And now I will have to dead head them, cut away the dead roses: another fight with the torturous thorny attackers.
