Future Roses

My gardener cut back my roses just a couple of weeks ago - like down to just nubs. It didn't take long for the new buds to begin sprouting. As long as I had the macro lens on the camera I figured I'd grab a shot or two. I put a piece of blue sparkly paper behind the plants, but the sparkles didn't come through quite as well as I had hoped for. Oh well!
While not the effect you might have hoped for, it does make it easier for us to see the new life springing forth! I predict that you'll have tons of beautiful blooms as a result of the hard pruning!

I do the rose pruning in our garden Ron, sometimes getting in trouble for a to severe crop/chop but they always flower again, lol:)

Roses respond so well to extreme pruning. This is a cool capture!

@Weezilou Thanks Louise. I'm hoping for just that - tons of beautiful blooms. I've been faithfully feeding and coddling them, so I'm optimistic. Luckily they grow pretty quickly.

@pcoulson Yeah, they're really kind of impervious to error prone gardeners like me and apparently you, Peter. ;) Thanks one reason I like to plant them.

@louannwarren Thanks Lou Ann. Extreme pruning it was - and I'm a bit surprised by their quick bounce back. Hoping for some great results come summer.

@caterina Thanks Caterina. I'll be able to get some sky shots in, oh, about six months! I appreciate the comments.
