Hi Rosemary,

We are way behind on rain here in Charlotte too, almost eight inches.  We
received a little help from tropical storm Dennis, but not enough.  I am
hoping the fall weather is wetter.

I stopped watering the beds as well.  My late summer roses were puny
because of the lack of rain.  I decided not to fertilize the rose beds
through the summer.  Didn't want to stress them out.  I have watered the
azaleas, rhodos and the mountain laurel, but still managed to lose one of
my laurels.

Don't work too hard.
