Preparation is the Name of the Season

Pruning. That's what this weekend was all about. Cutting back on the plants to make them ready for the coming growing season. Above, the front yard roses have finished their late winter bloom. They're last in line, it's time to cut them back.

I started at the far end of the backyard, pruned a couple of bushes a week, and worked my way over here.

Now, they're all done. I'm soaking the ground so I can pull up the weeds. The smaller trimmings are thrown onto the lawn to get chopped and mulched by the mower.

When it's all done, it looks like this - except I still have to pull up the weeds.
