I finally tried to enter my garden again and Rover was blocking it. There was a dialogue which ended with me giving him a present that had all of my remaining butterflies and I think he said there would be something in my mailbox. The scene ended, but when it came back up, I'm still just standing there in front of Rover. We're swinging our arms, so the game isn't technically locked. But I can't move, there is no menu on the bottom, and the level, leaf, and bells icons at the top don't do anything if I touch them. I'm going to just turn the app off since I'm using an iPhone and do a hard restart if that doesn't work. But did this happen to anyone else?
In my case my game did not lock up, but I also wasn't able to complete the entire challenge. As I started working on the new Winter event, I noticed that Rover was still standing off to the side of the entrance. I went over to talk to him and he so nicely said his goodbyes. I gave him my butterflies and he sent a large amount of bells to my mailbox.
