"Tending the Garden."

Hello,

Winter is nearly at a end, sunshine for the next week. Life is busy, family in all directions. Lots of visits to Perth etc. One home sick today. One family member has been on a baking spree each day. Yummy healthy biscuits etc.  Have taken up a new hobby.  Something is always happening, but it is that time of the year again.


It is time for me to fill this bin with pruning's from the roses in the front garden, probably about 100 roses plus.I have a week to fill it. Leave me some love and I will put your name in for a small present. Will announce the winner next Tuesday.

Until then.

Happy days.
Bev C

I really enjoy pruning my roses, but over100 is a very big job. They must look wonderful when they are all in bloom.

Wow! A big job ahead Bev. But your roses are always a treat when you share their blooms with us. Hope your Sickie is well soon.

Anthea said...

100 rose bushes?! You will be busy with them my friend!! That bin will be groaning, but when the warmer months come your garden will be the envy of your neighbours as they drive by... Got some good gloves?!!

Charlie and Wendy said...

You are going to be very busy with 100 roses to prune! I am very spoilt and my dad still prunes mine, I only have about 15!

Mylene said...

WOW! that's a lot!!! Wish i can grow roses here at my garden too, tried a few times but it didn't work out.

Sue said...

A whole skip bin of prunings! Your garden is worth it tho' so beautiful.

Karen said...

That is a huge task!! Good luck. I know it will take only a short time to fill that skip!

Deb said...

You will be busy, but what better work than outside in the garden! Wish I could help you!

Nicky said...

Have fun with the prickly work Bev! I still have about half mine to do too...

Hi Bev,
We can't wait for our cooler days. But, it has been a cooler August in Southern Calif. With the days getting shorter and a feel of Fall in the air, I'm making my list of things I want to bake and cook.

100 roses! amazing and beautiful when they are all in bloom. I will prune my rose in late December early January.
Happy gardening!
Blessings,
Bobbie Lynn

Gosh Bev - nearly missed this post :-) Hope your pruning is coming along well & that you are progressing. Nice to feel the milder weather on its way. Your roses will look wonderful when they bloom again :-)
