In praise of December roses

Don't cut your roses back! Even the twigs may in this cold month do something as beautiful as this:

They may be a bit bruised by frost and tattered by winter winds, but the roses aren't going anywhere this year. Mostly from other peoples' front gardens and municipal planting on sunny walls, but the tiny globe of red rose is from my own back garden (as is the random winter jasmine).
