The trail leads you away from the walk, across the frosty, windbeaten grass of your lawn, and off towards the copse of birches and maples west of your house.
As you follow the trail, the petals grow more numerous. You notice that they seem to come from two types or strains of roses; heavy, dark, almost purple petals mixed with lighter petals, of a red that verges on pink.
When you arrive at the copse, the trail splits. The darker petals surge to the left, running down the middle of a well-cut pebble path, while the lighter roses cut into the undergrowth, marking an otherwise invisible rabbit track.
