Unbelievable.....56 degrees, sunny, and no wind....Time to get out there and prune the roses!
For Christmas, Chad got me the most amazing gloves for this job, and I've been eager to try them out.
They are called "Bionic".
And they are TRULY FANTASTIC. They are snug fitting in the hand with supple but thick enough leather so that no thorns penetrate but I can feel what I am doing. The forearm guards mean no nasty scratches, which always happened with my old workgloves.
Total success. Find them here....they'll be great for hacking back blackberries, too.
No close ups of my garden, (although you can click on the picture to make it bigger.) I never can seem to do the final garden clean up in October so it looks pretty bad in there. But how nice to be outside working for the first time this year!
