Prunes


No, not the edible variety or even the trees—but ROSES

Today the rose garden at Mcfadden Ward house is being thoroughly pruned–and the cuttings are given away to neighbors and others interested in roses. It is not warm outside–not even 50 degrees. Here is the pruner:

and here is the older gentleman who is cutting off pieces of brown kraft paper for us to wrap up our goody bundles to take home:

And here is what I brought home:

I pruned and clipped and stuck them all in a bucket, filled it with water and put it near the dining room window where most of my orchids seem to flourish. Hopefully I will have one or two rosebushes but if not–it was fun chatting with the garden workers and the other hopeful rose gardeners.

Tomorrow will be some photos of the spring bulbs in my yard–
