Saturday morning I looked outside and was delighted to see good weather for the weekend. I was overdue on completing my yearly task of getting all of my roses pruned. Two weeks earlier I managed to prune about half of them, but the remaining half hung over my head during the recent rains. So, with the sun out - I was headed to the backyard to finish my pruning task. I enjoyed the quiet time in the yard by myself - and did a bit of reflecting as I worked. It was pretty exhausting task, but I felt such a relief when I finished the whole job. Mission Accomplished!!
Later in the day when I was thinking of something to sketch -- I thought of my old clippers that I cherish because my Dad gave them to me, and my work gloves that were very dirty from use. I set the clippers and dirty gloves on the table and then lost myself in drawing and painting them. I thoroughly enjoyed the artistic outlet and reflection on my adventures in the garden. Now I can't wait for my roses to bloom!
