Yes I conquered, I conquered the rose, the bush rose to be precise.
It was about 5ft in diameter lots of interweaving branches, dead branches, live branches FULL of little stabbing thorns, we did battle, it didn’t give up without a fight but I didn’t give up either, I kept going through all the pain, ah yes we fought the good fight, I cut and snipped with abandon whilst it stabbed me on the back of the hand, on the back of the leg and on my bum (ouch) I may have said a naughty word or more.
It then whipped up and got me……
Nasty little rose bush, but I won in the end…..it is a neat little 1 foot high by about 1 foot wide.
I am victorious. (trumpets blowing, flags flying)
You can applaud now 🙂
Thank you (bowing)
