The Last of the Roses
Yesterday was pruning day, pruning my roses that is. They were covered in black spot & rust from all the rain that we have had. Also because of the rain, there were new shoots coming everywhere, and probably new flowers too. But it is winter, they are supposed to be dormant, and now is the time to prune, so I did. Quite often I get lovely bunches of flowers when I prune, but this year I just got this one. The last stem from my Jennifer rose. It lookes & smells divine.
