Although Sunday is a day of rest, perhaps read a book, or go for a walk, I try to spent it in the garden as often as possible. It was bright and sunny today, with blue skies and fluffy white clouds. The sort of sky you often see in 17th century landscape paintings by Dutch masters, like Van Ruysdael.
How I love my garden, despite the amount of work it takes to keep the weeds under control. I cut back the hedges on the left and right side of the garden (24 metres in total), a job my husband always used to do. I felt incredibly proud afterwards. The hedge wasn't as straight as I hoped it would be, but practice makes perfect. Next time it will look much better.
Have to tell you though that I cut the electrical cord as well........ Ha, ha, glad I enjoyed being proud for more than an hour! :-)
Oh and the roses.....the roses :-) They are all so very pretty! I made some bouquets and cut some flowers, to show you a few of the roses I have.
Hope we will be able to spend lots of time in the garden this week. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Wishing you a good time!
