|Cleaned out the flower beds against the south and east sides of my home yesterday. I was more worried about those irises getting rot since the beds are in partial shade (take a little longer for soil to dry).
However, we are in a freeze zone until early May, and I'm not worried about those irises getting a little freeze. The house protects them by keeping them a tad warmer, and I remember in the past cleaning out flower beds at this time of year and all my perennials survived the unexpected freeze.
I may just continue cleaning out the rest of the flower beds/gardens on my property now that I have next week off. Hopefully the weather will be nice though.
Not only people give others signs, but plants do too.

|Thanks Elsa. I will be sure to share pictures when I start getting blooms. I haven't looked at my Iris close up so I don't know what if anything is going on with them. I noticed one of my raised beds of Iris is snow free so I may take a walk out through the snow to check that bed out.
