While the front yard roses are just starting their first bloom of the year, the backyard blooms are done.
It's time for the first deadhead of the year.
At the top, 'Moonstone' and it's unknown yellow companion display dozens of spent flower. Chop! Off the go.
Mr. Lincoln is also looking a little peaked. Much better after a much-needed haircut.
Not to be outdone by the roses, our spicy hot red chiles are getting a little rangy. Cutting it back to the new growth with help it produce another bumper crop...we've still got hundreds of dried chiles from last year waiting to be used.
