A week of pruning

The sun is out (albeit very spasmodically).

These late winter days always act as a warning to get pruning and tidying before it’s too late and the Spring growth is upon us!

So I’ve spent the last week obsessively pruning everything I can see.  I started with the blackberry, then moved on to the plum trees, the apple trees and finally the wisteria.

It is exhausting work because a pair of clippers, a pair of loppers and a rather awkward ladder has to follow me everywhere.  And of course that ladder has to be moved, stabilized and climbed up and down hundreds of times!

Arms raised, heavy tool in hand, neck stretched back, eyes up.

I certainly feel every bit of the pain today…but when these beautiful plants show off their fruit and flowers in another few months it will have been worthwhile!
