198/366: rose pruning time

I attacked the roses with a vengeance, and now they are all trimmed and ready for spring growth. Even the flower carpet roses had a thorough haircut. After I give them a good feed they should be all raring to go.

The recycling bin is full once again, and I rescued the last three roses and put them in a vase, having fun trying to find a good position from which to photograph them.

It’s hard to believe the next photo is the same rose sitting behind the taller rose.

First, I put the vase on the window sill to give a view of the front garden.

Then, still in our bedroom, the green wall provided a nice background colour.

And finally, I put the vase on the coffee table in the lounge.
