As I was pruning my two Imposter roses today, I felt a dull pain in the joint of my right thumb. I thought it might be the first twinge of arthritis. Serves me right. I shouldn't spend so much time at the computer, and I definitely shouldn't have so many roses that it takes a month to prune them. I came home, took my gloves off, and found a thorn stuck into that very spot that hurt. Who would have thought? I took it out and it stopped hurting. Now perhaps I could write another blog post after all, and maybe get another rose or two.
All those hips (and buds) came from my two bushes. I am going to try and make some hip tea, now that I feel better:-)
