The weather warmed up and I finally had some time to work outside. I trimmed back all the dead plants that I left over the winter. My theory was that by leaving the dead plant up over the winter the roots would have a little more insulation against the cold. also any seeds left the critters could eat and they could make a nest in the plant over the winter. Not sure how sound that theory is.
The bee balm is starting to come up and the irises are poking up. The crocuses has been up for a few weeks. They are so cute!
