Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
– Martin Luther
OK so I didn’t plant an apple tree today, but I did prune my roses; a tad early as it turns out, because I thought it was the end of July already, not a week off, and you’re only supposed to prune your roses on 15th August.
This date I got from an elderly neighbour, who had the most magnificent rose bushes blooming in glory year after year. Everyone else around would notice when she pruned hers and quickly go off to prune their own measly specimens, myself included!
Well, it is sunny and pleasant and next weekend it may be pouring down with gale force winds. So ’tis done.
This doesn’t really fit in with Martin’s quote above, but I do like it.
