Not the most exciting pic I have ever posted, but one that had a couple projects that were knocked off the Honeydoo list. The first nice spring day we were able to get the roses pruned that we were keeping and the ones removed that only the rootstock of the plant still alive. Here is a nice little generic article on rose pruning. https://www.gardendesign.com/roses/pruning.html My biggest recommendation is a very sharp pair of pruners and thick gloves and clothing, if not... there will be blood.

The other project mixed in here was the annual pruning and thinning of the Peanut Butter Bush. What is that you ask??? here check out this link.

I love this plant because if you even brush up against the leaves, they emit a smell that is just like, you guessed it, peanut butter. All I know is, it was nice to finally get outside and start getting my hands dirty although the next looming project is not going to be an easy one
