A haircut for the Bushes

Today  I decided to do my January task of trimming the butterfly bushes.  Rolo decided to help me and he was quite a big help for an almost five year old.  He was a little upset at first that I was hurting the plants, but when I told him that I was just giving the bushes a haircut he was happy to join me.  We trimmed the butterfly bushes and the "christmas tree" bushes and some of the roses.  The knock out roses still need to be done but not today!! The Spring chores are just beginning and it looks like I still have a lot to do!  But then again, what gardener ever considers their garden as finished?
