I've had a bit of a medical hiatus over the last couple weeks, so no blogging. But yesterday was a pretty day, sunny and not too cold, so we took the opportunity to prune the climbing roses on the lodge. Not a very rewarding actvitiy at the time, since the rose has nasty thorns and I always end up with the tips of a few thorns irritating my finger tips. But I hope that the reward will be in the form of lots of big, scented flowers in due course. The rose is Ena Harkness; hybrid Tea, blood red and with a sweet perfume.
We shred the cuttings as we go. That reminds me, the shredder motor is leaking oil. Must get that sorted. The pic shows us partway throug the job - you can see where we've been and how it was beforehand.
