I counted. We have sixty-five rose bushes around the old folks home. I last showed you the last roses of summer.
Then they were pruned 'way back. Now, all sixty-five, as though they had scheduled a reunion, have sprouted tiny little sprigs on the trimmed back stubs.
They seem to have all come out on the same day. Isn't that something? Here's a snap of one of them, with one tiny sprig starting to grow. Stay tuned... I will try to remember to take them regularly as they grow. It will be the next best thing to time lapse photos of the flowering.
