Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Pruning your roses in the middle of winter
Ensures that the stems will never splinter
Cut the stems cleanly and on a sharp angle
And the buds that bloom will never tangle

Thanks for the horticultural lesson. Not that I grow anything that I don't manage to kill within three weeks...

I wonder why we say pruning... So fruity (and I mean that in a good way).

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Your verses are pretty
Your advice very witty
Your photos fresh and their subjects true.
