Finally Pruned

Today I finally pruned my roses.

Pruning roses, January, yard work, roses, yellow rosesI really should not have waited this long to get it done, but a lot of things have gotten in the way of the task.

Pruning roses, January, yard work, roses, yellow rosesLast week I posted that I Need to Prune my Roses. This bush really made me think of how late I was pruning. It was already starting to bloom again.

This bush was spilling over and through the fence and it was a bit of a challenge. I had to work a few of the canes out from between the boards of the fence.

I also mowed the yard for the first time this year. With the foggy and gloomy weather the grass has not grown much.

The back yard needs to be mowed also, but I decided it could go for another week or two.

I am wondering how sore I will be tomorrow. I used some muscles today that don’t get used too much.
