Keep Movin'. Don't stand still, or they'll get you. And don't turn your back.
I looked out my courtyard door today and.... whoa. Our favorite yellow rosebush, Jude, had been cut off at the knees. She had been cut back to three feet in height.
Alas. And yet, I know it was the right thing to do. It is COLD out there, and she'll sprout again in February...at least, Twiggy did this year.
The cuttings lay on the ground and I wheeled out and saved some for a friend's garden. Now Jude will have off-spring to beautify other parts of Merced, our town.
