Yes, he's been really busy.  BTW - He did very well in his tournament.  He came in 2nd place in katas, and 1st place in sparring.  His sensei says he thinks he'll be ready for semi knockout in July - I'm sooooo dreading that!!!  I'll post some new pics of him soon.

My roses aren't doing well this year at all.  Not sure whats going on with them.  I have two desert roses that are doing beautifully.  I'll try to get some pics of them soon.

Yes, he brought home 2 trophies.  I didn't take videos of this tourny.....someone accidentally threw away my power cords to the camera, but I'll try to have video clips of the next one. 

Yes, he'll actually be fighting in the semi knockout, which I HATE!!!

Sounds like a beautiful picture!  I have 1 climber and the rest are just plain old bush roses.  I also have 4 knockout roses, but they arent' doing well either.  We havent' had rain in weeks, so that may be part of the problem, plus I'm having serious issues with moles.

Yes, he does.  If you knew him you would be surprised, he's a big old teddy bear, and really doesn't like conflict.  He really enjoys it though and is now working with weapons too.

Hey have you tried planting a bunch of marigolds around your roses, it helps with the gophers and the moles as these roots bulbs or whatever are poison.. it works pretty good if you use them to border off your roses....

We have used them for years to keep the gophers away from our vegetable garden. Planted them all the way around the fence close together, then sparatically around throughout the different vegetables and around the roses!
