S., who is here pretty much every day, commented on yesterday's post that the picture of the roses didn't do justice to how beautiful they were. The rose bush was quite a bit more luscious than the picture showed. This morning it was even better as more of the buds had unfurled.
Between 4 and 5 p.m. today, Jim went to town to pick up the mail, etc., and I was at my sewing machine working on a project. When he came in the back door, he said, "Dear, I have terrible news for you."
I am SO SAD!!! I tried so hard to protect this beautiful rose bush, just three feet from our back door. But while I wasn't looking sometime between 4 and 5 today a deer snarfed all the blooming roses and all the buds. AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!
