I Promised You a Rose Garden - Full Cycle

   Yesterday was the day. All the roses in the rose garden got cut back to about fourteen inches, for the winter.  That includes Twiggy.  We started following the Twiggy life cycle last February, when she was just a twig in the ground, and watched her grow, bloom, and re-bloom, and keep blossoming until yesterday 

   I didn't know it was going to happen.  I went out to the rose garden, and there was no garden there.  Just a stubble. It was a shock, and a bit depressing, but I know they'll be back and blooming next April.  I have the pictures to prove it.

   Jude, being on the inside courtyard, escaped the bushwhacker. She is blooming outside my door right now.

   Today I'll go and take the final picture in the Twiggy saga.

it doesn't seem right for them to be cut back while still blooming.... I look forward to Spring
