I spent the afternoon tending to my plants. I have to be honest: I’ve been a bad plant mommy. I finally pruned my climbing roses (which are already coming back to life, i should have done that a month ago). That’s where I found the lizard just chilling on the rose stem.
I finally made it back to my grapevines, which were in utter disarray. I was so nervous about pruning them because it was going to be a major training for the vines. There’s hardly anything left of them now! I decided to umbrella train the front row and head-trained/cane-pruned the other two rows. Kind of an experiment. we’ll see how bad I am crying at the end of the summer. I really should have done this last month–they are already budding. Shoot. (shoots! hee hee hee!)
