|The close-up above of one of the "balls" kind-of shows just how tiny they are if you notice my pinkie finger there on the right.
This grouping of roses come back nicely every year after we whack them down at the end of the season. It produces tons of lovely rose hips. That is it for now. More in a day or three.
We have our grandson for the month. He is helping with yard chores- raking and the like. He learned how to use the chain saw today. We have two small trees that were girdled by the previous owners and they need to come down. Himself's wrist damage makes the task painful to handle. The first tree is laying across the upper drive for now. It will be cut up and stored. Limbing sucks, but the guys are having fun working together.
I need to look up a bee that was browsing through the roses. It had a copper bit on its back. It was so weird, yet the way the copper shone in the light was beautiful. The air outside is lovely- sweet flowers, grasses and tree-scents all mingled into a heady blend. I am actually looking forward to summer this year.
