Hawkeye, I wish I could grow roses. Over the years I've tried various types and evidently have a brown thumb with roses. The only exception is the Double Knockout. My neighbor started buying them and said they were impossible to kill. I got three of them a couple of years ago and she was right. My grandpa used to grow all kinds of roses; he had a huge patch of them out front. They were gorgeous. HEChicken, thank you making me feel not so bad about my missing chicken! Did you ever figure out how on earth your hen got on top of the coop?
