Happy New Year to everybody! It's a fresh start and we get to begin again.

One of the first things I planted here in our 4 year "new" house is this Orange Flame Vine, Pyrostegia venusta. I adore orange and not many of my clients do. It was difficult to find but I needed it. I love the color and the fact that it blooms in winter through spring. We have this 4' high chain link fence between us and our neighbors to the west. I think they get to enjoy more flowers on their side than we do

In other news this is my first week of rose pruning for the season.  
I pruned 256 roses this week!

 I'll post my weekly totals every Friday until I finish. I hope you'll follow along.

Happy gardening!


  1. 256! Wow! Were they located on more than one property? Did one pair of pruners do the job? 256! Wow! Inquiring minds want to know, haha!

  2. Hi Sharrie! Thanks for asking! Last week was short with New Years Day. So this number was just Tuesday and Friday if memory serves. And that would be 3 jobs, one pair of Felco pruners with a new blade and just ME! Check back tomorrow to see this weeks totals. It might be more than last week with 5 full days of pruning jobs. :-)
