My Rose Bush Has Been Invaded

My yellow rose bush looked beautiful last month, but now it seems to be languishing.

The bugs have definitely had their fill. I think the real culprit is this orange powdery stuff. I'll have to do some investigating.

Oh dear, that looks bad. I don't know a thing about roses, so I can't help.

Oh, dear. That's not good. I haven't a clue what it could be. I've only had to contend with aphids and blackspot.

Yikes!!Oh no! so sad :( Could it be "Rose Rust?" *rust pustules containing orange-yellow spores develop on leaves,stems and sepals.Remedy:avoid splashing leaves when watering.Prune out infected leaves and discard outside of garden. Apply sulphur or ferbam...according to my garden remedies book.
Well look at that we both like Enya,roses, fairies and belly dancing! Thanks for visiting my site!
