Finding Time

This past month I haven't seemed to have enough hours in the day. I certainly haven't had enough time to blog much but I have been busy. Playing catch-up some of the time and working through my to-do list which is ever lengthening.
I can't say I took much time out to 'smell the roses', but I did weed, water and mulch the rose gardens so they are in good shape for the hot weather.
I pruned the roses hard this past winter so I'm hoping that they respond well to that. I can say they all survived their haircuts whether they are happy about it or not remains to be seen. There are flowers on some plants and just buds on others and aphids on many but that's a story for another day.

I have squeezed in some sewing too but that's top secret for now.

Hopefully I can find that extra time soon.

Lots of roses, we have a few that have kind of gone wild and also thousands of true wild ones that the deer eat. I just don't have time to take care of them.

I always prune my roses hard - they do well with that.
enjoy your gardening!
