Did you know that it is only a few weeks until Spring?
Our poor neglected garden sure does! Our hydrangeas were very late blooming this year and the rose blooms kept on coming then all of a sudden the leaves just dropped away, hips started colouring up and new buds started peeking through.
Yes, it was definitely time for some long overdue pruning at our house!
Here is what we got up to at the weekend, with the last prunings cut up just in time for green bin pickup.
No pruning happens at our house without the help of our Fiskars PowerGear Pruners. They have comfy handles and an easy action that works well even with sore, arthritic hands.
Of course it is not all dull and gloomy in our garden. Here are a couple of bursts of colour that we are enjoying on these chilly winter days. The orchid was picked this morning and we will be taking it around to my Mother-In-Law so that she can enjoy it every time she goes in to her kitchen.
