Summer Has Begun
Roses - pruned back dead branches and cleared around the base of the plants to allow better air flow. There are two red roses, one white and a pink. All are hybrid tea varieties.
Allium (Allium sativum) - pulled up most of the spreading volunteers and its root systems.
Bleeding Heart (Lamprocapnos spectabilis) - already in bloom, I pulled some around edges to keep plants contained.
Black-Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta) - these plants have reached about six inches tall. I already pulled the dead stalks from last year. They just needed some thinning back from areas where I don't want them to spread.
Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) - there are a few plants back by the fence, most were thinned out of this section as they were crowding the walkway and the roses.
