In the garden: pruning the fruit trees

Oh frabjous day! The pruning men came and pruned all the fruit trees, even the ones they weren't supposed to. ("The pear tree will grow back, right?" "Oh, absolutely.")

Here are a couple of pictures of the apple tree waaaaay in the back corner which, until last year, a) never got any light; b) never produced any fruit and c) never got pruned. I'm thinking it's much happier now.

Before.  And, yes, those are roses blooming on the arbor to the right. And lemons.

Much better!
Spring can come any time now.

fabulous photos - but can I just say that I shoveled a foot of snow out of my driveway this morning and waited almost an hour for the bus? brrrrrrr!!!!!!

you may think you are still waiting for spring to come, but as far as I can tell you already have it!

You're right. We're spoiled rotten here.
