To say that I am excited that spring is here would be a grand understatement!
Today we have beautiful sunshine to celebrate even though the temps are cold. I’ll take it. I know we are on the right track.
Today I have pansies and violas to plant! These little beauties can take the cold and keep smiling.
As soon as I see the forsythia blooming, I will be pruning and starting garden clean up! To read my top tips for spring care for roses, read on here. Until then, I’m making lists and checking them twice — and running to garden centers any chance I get!
Let’s look back to Spring 2018 and remember the kind of things we have to look forward to…

Hello Teresa, I love how you let Nature tell you when it is time to prune! Enjoy every minute in your garden!
I so enjoy reading your blog! After living in Texas for 32 years with horrible clay soil, I moved home to the Greater Cincinnati area and thought that I would have wonderful soil to grow beautiful roses. What a disappointment when I started to plant in my garden and found clay. But, thanks to your blog I have hope that I too can have beautiful roses.
Like Ohio we have loads of clay in Indiana! But it can be amended to grow just about anything! Best wishes with your garden.
It’s Garden Time!
Oh yes!! Spring is just the best—watching everything come back. So many miracles!! 🌱😍
