Here is another Clematis,the color does not show very well and then a plant I have no idea what it is,don't like it much either.
The flowers only open when the sun is shining.

Your roses are perfect, not a blemish .
What do you use on them for pest control?

Love your roses chico, and the poppies are beautiful. I have never grown poppies but some day would love a garden full of them
I'm gonna guess the last plant to be spiderwort, but I could be wrong

Beautiful yellow rose Chico, pink one too, but I'm not into pink very much. The other plant, I think Lukka'sma is right, I had one and didn't like it either but have a girlfriend who takes all of my 'no like' plants My Poppies are the same colour, still haven't popped yet, I love them trouble is they don't last long

Lukkas mom,I think Spiderwort is what they are,I keep pulling them out,but they keep coming back.I'll leave them now,but when they start getting out of hand out they go.
Chris,I also have a few different shades of red roses and a white one,but they are not blooming yet.
As for keeping them bug-free,we have a pesticide ban in Oakville,but when I noticed aphids,I did spray and they are now gone.poor Aphids
I have more problems with fungus,nothing seems to work.
