I hope it wasn’t the set-up for a sucker punch. Today and yesterday, the weather has been in the 60’s and sunny. I went out and did some light pruning of the roses. I read in my rose book that you can prune too much, but not too little. So I decided this year to try just shaping up the shrub roses and pruning out dead canes. It was such a mild winter that there were not many of those, unlike last year. It was a very small and easy job.
I can hardly wait to see them spring back to life.
Monday I attended a master class given by Scott Conklin down at the university. It was really interesting. He’s obviously a really good teacher. He had so many different metaphors to help the students associate a mental picture with the change he was suggesting. Afterwards Scott (my Scott) and I had lunch in the T room. It was really a fun day all in all.
I feel the winter funk lifting.
