some animal is eating my rose buds
I have a yellow rose and for the last 2 years, just before it's ready to bloom, an animal bites off the bud and I find pieces of it on my deck. It is clearly an animal and not an insect. I've lived here for 20 years ( in the city ) and this is the first time I've had this happen. Any ideas what animal it could be? Do I just need to fence my roses in?
