Sunday Rose Cleanup

This afternoon I cleaned up my roses. I noticed while mowing the lawn yesterday that I really needed to cut off all the spent blooms.

I like to call them parchment roses. However, there were a lot of new buds coming on, so I made sure I cleaned up all the dried out roses.

It is always nice to see cleaned up rose bushes, but it takes a bit of work and I usually end up with a few scratches even if I wear rose gloves.

I am hoping for a little bit better weather this week. The roses did not like the 100+ degree weather or the very windy days that followed. This week it will be hot, but only up to the 90’s.

Now for another busy week of work and some more virtual travel as I train the world.
