●Ivy & Rose Pruning
Ivy has grown a lot for a year! we pruned it to the wall.
after pruning! very tidy 😉
“Wall Rose pruning”. First, look at the each stem and think and chose which stem we need this year to have many nice and healthy flowers and also think whole shape of the shrub at the same time. ummm 『pruning』 is needed the ability to look ahead to the future and make decision quicky. I like 『pruning』training!
we need to be careful when working with this rose as it has very strong thorn.
can you see beautiful horizontal line?? we made it!
the results after fighting with Rose…I need training more!
it was completed like this☆
//////////////////////////////// Still SNOW ///////////////////////////////
Galanthus nivalis ‘Flore pleno’
In England, Spring is coming with SNOW DROP(Galanthus)

●Winter Task !

After tidying up on the ground⇒Scratching the ground to make it look NICE♪
Go trough the green gate! you will see…
Poppy garden !
I can feel spring is coming little by little…
we can find “new shoots”
here in Poppy Garden. She found many animal bones and this was one of them, pig teeth. wow
//////////////////////////////// my view point ///////////////////////////////
”Spring is coming soon” After we tidied up the ground, new shoots coming up from ground are seen clearly.
most of time I’ve worked very near the ground. I like looking up sky. Lots of Buds on branches are growing and growing every moment for blooming in Spring.
