Winter chores

Today I cut down the browned asparagus.  I saw that a few spears of the new year's crop are already up.  I also began the chore of pruning the roses.  Once those are done, or maybe intermittently, I will prune the fruit trees.  Jerry's arm is in worse shape than my shoulder this year, so it's all on me.  I enjoy pruning.  For sure it is more fun than pulling the annual grass weeds.  Most of the perennials have already been cut back, but there are a few still to take care of.  Just think, in a month the daffodils will be blooming and spring will have arrived.

  1. I cannot wait for spring! Our little daffodils are trying to make their way up already, and tiny green things are throughout the plant bed. We're excited to see what made it and what new things will bloom!
