Early Springtime

Temperatures this weekend were in the high sixties, low seventies. I spent most of the weekend in the yard, pruning bushes, cutting back the butterfly bushes, hydrangeas, splitting the bearded irises, trimming back roses, spreading mulch, and basically doing the springtime garden chores.

With the warmer temperatures, a few things started to bloom. Here are a few crocuses and an infestation of children I found in my yard.

Beautiful flowers (and children!) We're in Zone 6. So is this the time of year to cut back Midland Roses? They are about 16 months old. All I've ever done is dead-head them. Not sure when is the right time to cut them back or if I even need to. Love this time of year!!!
