I’ve started on pruning the roses.
I know I’m a tad late but circumstances kept me inside
And even though I felt good this morning, I had a long needed sleep in,
I only got through five rose bushes before I had to stop
Even with my new toy, a mini chain saw, that works wonderfully on the thicker
Branches It’s still hard work. All that bending and trying to get into little areas
Without losing skin or even an eye!
Hubby helped by removing the branches for me
I had quite the pile.
I did do the five worst plants first.
After feeding the chickens, I even gave them the weeds I pulled in the rose garden
I started on another paining
I think the hardest thing is waiting for the layers to dry
I did try doing one layer, trim a rose bush, do another layer
And that helped
I’m now inside
Having a rest
If I feel good this afternoon I may go out and cut back a few more roses
