This also works on bouganvillea. Roses do not have 1" long thorns on 5 or 10' stems. Dropping the stems to the ground and chopping them to bits with a long reach hedge trimmer minimizes the puncture wounds.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

They're by far the best source of welding gloves I've found on the net.
Once they're too dirty for TIG welding, they go to the gardening tasks, or my wife steals them.

There are a lot of cheaper or thicker goatskin gloves out there, but the leather in these is so good, you can just about sort change in your pockets while wearing them.

Just use a fork and toss 'em in the truck/trailer. No need to waste time chopping them up.

If you like the job Granholm is doing for Michigan, you'll love the job Obama will do for the U.S.
