I realize that I have been talking a lot about pruning lately so I thought I would share with you a photo taken while I was pruning one of my apple trees. I keep these trees relatively small so I can prune them myself...still as you see here it does require a bit of climbing. And, yes...I am careful. After this, pruning the roses and the other shrubs is a piece of cake although it usually takes me several weeks to get the whole garden done; just another day in the life of a gardener. This is also where my work at the gym and yoga pays off ~ to keep me in relatively good physical condition so I can continue to indulge in my passion for gardening. And when this is all done I can start planting the dahlias and lilies I bought today...Spring is coming!
How about you...climbed any trees lately?
