the prune

Thirteenth of July and I’ve finished pruning the rose bushes. All eleven of them. Which may not sound like many, but it is enough for this wrist to operate the pruning shear and saw.

I wanted to cut them back hard this year, as they have had an easy time of it the last couple of years. I’ll wait to see what buds form, and I may prune a little more before the month is out.

Dad is visiting us the day after his birthday, Tuesday week. Hopefully they will receive the “Dad Rose Pruning Stamp of Approval” 🙂
