Pruning Roses

I know this doesn't look very artful, but pruning very large roses is sometimes more about the big picture than delicate art. These large climers have become so overgrown that their supports were tipping or sagging. We are doing some heavy-duty pruning with the help of Ben, Shannon, John and Drake.

The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.

I know some people might consider pruning play, but it looks like work to me. :) At least we've had lovely weather. Pruning is even less fun when it is cold and dreary.

Aw, but the company made a difference! Ben says he is so sore! I almost want to laugh! I've been there, so I am trying to be sympathetic.

Cheri, love your blog. Are you enjoying it? Once you get that down, you should join facebook. I am meeting "old" friends that I haven't talked to in years.

I will visit your blog...keep it up.
