Lost Another One
Never fails, at least one comes back "dead" each year. I thought it wouldn't happen this year due to the mild winter. I suppose it's bound to happen as I try to grow things not suggested for my zone, but I usually do have pretty good luck overall with roses.
So, I'll let my latest 'Dr. Huey' have it's moment of glory before I shovel prune it!

In better news, I divided a bunch of hostas and expanded my shade garden out back. It was like playing in mud with all the rain we've had lately. But it made it easier to divide the plants.

Looks real nice! I have also been expanding my shade gardens and moving Hostas. Fun!
My Roses didn't fare too well this winter either. I uncovered them this weekend and so far only 2 of 6 are showing signs of life :( I've been working in my shade gardens too, splitting Hosta's to make room for new cultivars...
Sorry about your rose PL. they can be unpredictable sometimes. Congrats on your hosta splitting. Depending on the size of the hosta that can be tough work. I noticed yesterday that I have scads of hosta babies growing in my lawn near a planting of hostas. I am meaning to rescue them from the mower, but haven't done it as yet.
Sorry about your roses PL. I've not had much luck with roses in the past and have tried many but alas...I've given up. The hostas are looking good and now you've split them I'm sure they will grow and grow.
