I live in a historic district of Salem; no deer about. I have a planter that is about 18 inches off the ground, and in this planter I have several kinds of plants including a rose bush (planted just a few weeks ago). I had several beautiful, full red blooms on the bush, and sometime in the late afternoon something took three of them off...it looked as if they were cut just under the bloom...essentially decapitated. I have no idea what did it...there was a cat in the yard earlier in the day...squirrels have never bothered my other roses...barring human mischief, any ideas? One bloom, still intact, was on the ground, a second torn in half, a few petals in the road at the end of the driveway. We are talking a window of opportunity of about an hour, broad daylight.
