I just pruned these roses and what happens...

It's 40 degrees out so, I don't think this snow will stick around for long, but still....

I got the same snow and ice. I haven't pruned my roses yet though. I knew the cold snap was coming and it's still only 26. My roses can wait a bit. Hilarious!

David, snow won't hurt them as you know, just "our" egos. LOL. But-A beautiful picture!! Mid-Screen, high up, is that a light?

The photo was taken at about 7:30 a.m. in the park across from my apartment (where my garden waits). They have the street lamps set on a timer. To the left is the baseball field.

We've also had quite a bit of snow since I pruned, the weather has been very fickle this spring! That garden looks to have a lovely design, I hope to see photos of it when all is green and blooming.
