Rose pruning and deadlines looming...

Hey! I found this in that ol' scrap book I found. I actually did this project on about 40 climbing roses when I worked up on the North Shore. That customer's roses were so overgrown that it took me about an hour to prune each one. I could only prune until my truck was full of the canes I removed- then I had to end for the day. It took at least a week.
It was a really great project, but when I was trying to explain it to the customer beforehand I simply could not find a picture that did justice to the whopping undertaking it was.

Fast forward 2 and a half years... HERE'S the damn photo, 60 years old...



Anyways, I've been super busy selling stuff on eBay lately so I'm sorry I'm not posting as much as I should be- but I have a basement full of vintage clothes and it's like... The Island of Misfit Toys but for awesome vintage clothing... Gimme a week and I'll be bored of it and be sitting on a stack of cash...
