In the garden this week I did some winter pruning of rose bushes, daylilies, scented geraniums, lantanas, and astromeria. I really gave a hard prune to my rose bushes this year. Last year I went lighter on cutting them back but this year I’m being a little more aggressive.
It’s a little scary to see all these plants so bare and cut down. It’s hard to believe that all these bushes get big and leafy with loads of flowers in just 3 months. Every year I freak out that they won’t bounce back and that maybe I cut them too much. And every year they come back like gangbusters in the spring! Especially the rose bushes!
I did find a rose or two blooming here and there and brought them in to enjoy in a couple of little bouquets.
That was pretty much it for my gardening this week.
Have a great weekend everyone!
