Pruned roses today. All were dormant (Zone 8 ish), except my Sexy Rexy. Wow, it still had beautiful glossy leaves. A beautiful conformation and had a bloom or two. It was almost hard to prune...it looked so lively.

At the Nursery, this rose looked sad. I bought it at a reduced price. All of the Growers (Reps) told me that it was a great rose. We'll see.
