Pruning and cleanup is done and now all I have to do is walk and watch for changes each day. No little buds yet, but soon. No aphids yet but a bunch of ladybugs are around. In the following photos, the rose canes blend in with the soil, so you may think all I grow are daylilies. Not so! There are too many roses crammed into this small yard. I am slowly being taken over by Ice Follies daffodils, too!

I am trying to reduce the number of potted plants but it is difficult to do. I potted up some in-ground ne'er-do-wells such as Double Delight as it didn't like in its old spot--too shady. It is now in prime on-deck real estate (left of table.) While this garden looks OK now, it is much too crowded in summer.
