Roses in December

I finally broke down and cut back the roses today. They continued to bloom through November. Several buds remained and I salvaged this one.
I am anxious to see how the roses do in the Spring. They were looking rather weary when we moved in . . . after the banana peel application and a good pruning they did very well, but Spring will be the real test.
I found several bulbs during the initial yard clean up. I salvaged several, and decided to force these to see what happens.
