Bellevue Man Tames Sea Monster in his Front Yard

Today was the day I finally got around to giving Sigmund a haircut. Sigmund is the SeaMonster, er, the rose bush(es) that live in my front yard. Sigmund is quite unruly, and hard to kill. Believe me we've had our fights, sometimes I win, sometimes I walk away scratched and bloodied. Two years ago I lost fairly badly, scratched in several places including on my neck and face. Last year I took it to the beast, I used the chain saw... Unfortunately, Sigmund responded with just three roses this past spring. I think we have a truce now.

LOL... I'm glad you and Sigmund could work out your differences. You should be nice.

Wow, you weren't lying when you said it was a sea monster...

Now that is what I call a trim. I glad that you both survived.
