Ready For Rose Pruning

Tomorrow I start with my rose pruning jobs. So tonight I changed out my old Felco #2 pruner blade for a new one. I still have a stash of a few blades. That's what great about Felcos, that you can change blades. Since I'm a professional, I use my pruners every day. So I need them to be awesome!

Happy pruning!

I have a few plants that have reseeded themselves which seems kind of odd considering it's December. But we did have a warm year. Usually things come up the following year when they're supposed to, not in the same season as the original plant!

I've got one Tithonia that has grown to its full 3 feet in just a month! 

Profusion Zinnias 
And there's one Cosmos blooming now too.

Not sure how long they'll last. Often they come up in a bad place(too close to another plant). Do you have things reseed too?
