December in the Garden

Two roses grow this time of year, the sweet and the stinking. If I had to, I couldn't tell you which I loved more. In a week or so I'll cut the sweet roses down to nubs to encourage new growth. When the days begin to get a little longer, I'll fertilize the stinking roses to get nice fat heads. Oh roses. Oh garlic. You both make me feel tied into something ancient and mythical.
