Pruning and Tying the Climbing Roses

With temperatures expected to be above normal this week, I decided it was a good time to do some work in the flower garden to prepare it for the planting season.

The outdoor grounds crew began raking the flower beds, and removing all the plant debris. My gardener, Wilmer, started the task of pruning and tying the climbing roses, several of which are now located in my flower garden on tall tower trellises. All my climbers are thriving in this garden. If you recall, I moved them here a few years ago from my home in East Hampton, New York. I can't wait to see them all in full bloom once again.

Enjoy these photos, and get excited for spring - it is officially less than two weeks away.
