Respect the thorn

“He who wants a rose must respect the thorn.”
-Persian Proverb

Joshua and I attacked the largest set of rose bushes today. They were at least 7 feet tall with thick, dense growth. It was no easy task! 

Some of the branches look more like tree trunks than rose bush limbs. I think we are finally done pruning rose bushes. Next weekend, it is chainsaw time. We have have a dead tree and a few bushes that need to be removed. We are creating one big load that we can take to the dump in a uhaul. We hope to have the yard somewhat in order before Summer starts (which may have been yesterday in Phoenix). Then, we can go back to focusing on our indoor projects when it is too hot to be outside.
