After the drought for the past five years, rains finally came back to Southern California. It came back with vengeance this year and has been raining almost every week since December. Because of the rains almost every weekend, I did not have the time to prune the roses on time.
Finally had the time to prune the roses last weekend. What I found is an empty bird nest on one of the tree roses. The nest is nicely tucked on the center of the crown of the tree rose. There are some pieces of broken egg shells which indicate the bird who owns the nest laid eggs and perhaps hatched into chicks. Would have loved to see the small birds.
