Pruning is well under way. The fruit trees and roses have been pruned. The older grape vines have been pruned.

The wire trellis for the new grape vines has been installed and I am just waiting for the first signs of breaking dormancy to prune the grape vines and to start their training.

I need to get out there and prune the asparagus ferns off, because the asparagus will be coming up pretty soon.

I keep putting off pruning the brambles, but that job doesn't go away, no matter how long I procrastinate.

With very few exceptions, though, pruning is done for the year. The tulips are coming up and even the irises have a few shoots showing. Spring is on its way.

Pruned my itty bitty David Austen rose bush today, haha. It's only a year old, so I didn't want to cut it back too far, but then again, it's only maybe 2' off the ground. Think I will very, very sparingly prune my gigantic camellia (the dead branches, crossovers, and really low lying ones) tomorrow. Not sure if it's a good time though, since it's blooming like crazy.

Ha! I'm still waiting for all this snow to melt enough so I can get to the shrubs. It will be in the 60s here tomorrow, but I'll be working the master gardener hotline, telling people it's okay to prune their shrubs!
