Remember when I said a couple of weeks ago that I had cut back my 49 rose bushes? Yes, you read that right...I have 49 red knockout rose bushes. Well I gave them a pretty good whack, from about 5 foot high, to about 3 foot high. I thought maybe I had gone a little overboard on them, but within the past 2 weeks, my rose bushes have put out a ton of new growth and now they're just loaded down with buds, just waiting to bust open. About a week and I think I'll have a yard full of rose blooms. I'm excited! Spring is in full swing here in south Georgia! Here's a sneak peek of one rose that's already decided to bloom. The others need to follow his lead!
