Springtime jobs

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.

I was wondering where you were.

I hope you have recovered and are feeling better now.
