Before and After Clean Up

Tonight I will show some before and after pictures taken while cleaning up my rose bushes.

I then was so motivated that I mowed the front and back yard. I had planned on waiting until tomorrow. But since the forecast has changed and it will be 100 degrees tomorrow it is good that I got it done.
