Clearing out the Base!

Love Dad's Fav white roses was
here when bought the house in 1970
In the past week we had a good amount of rain here in Baltimore.  I went out on Saturday to clean
weeds and leaves around the base of my rose bushes.  Need to make sure the base of the plants are getting plenty of sunlight at the base to promote new growth and keep dry for disease prevention.   I decided to do it like some crazy exercise by bending around and not putting my knees on the ground!  It was crazy like I was playing twister!  I finally gave in and used an old lawn chair cushion.  It was very soft, I would recommend the  lawn chair cushion anytime.  When your done you can lay down and take a nap!

While out there I took a bunch of pictures.
Always like to start with a picture of Mary
Next here are many pics trying to capture some new rose growth!







I really liked the next pick for some reason?  I guess its the red.




Now I go crazy trying to get cool pics with the Sun shinning bright!


This one I think is cool






Some big picture views.
