On Saturday I finally just had to prune my last rose bush along with the last roses of the season. It is time to let the rose bushes have a restart.
On Wednesday I had done the initial cut back of my other rose bushes, but just could not bring myself to cut back my St. Patrick that still had blooms. In fact, it was even hard on Saturday as you can see that there are still some nice blooms.
Here are some of the blooms and buds laying on the trunk of my car. They still look so pretty and it was really hard to cut them off of the bush. However, I just have to tell myself that the sooner I cut the roses back, the sooner I will have blooms again.
The last roses of the season are now in a vase in my living room. I have been enjoying them for the last few days and will just have to see how long they last. I know it won’t be too long, but I will enjoy them as long as I can.
It is nice to look up from a book and see the beautiful roses.
