We bought a home this winter and I'm having so much fun this spring watching all that is popping up and blooming. I'm wondering if anyone can help me identify this. Some think roses (but what kind?!?) , someone else said peonies - I'm skeptical of that. They seem to have produced runners and are sprouting up in my front bed all over. In late winter, I went out and unfortunately had to cut a lot of it back because the previous owners had some kind of cotton all tangled up in it (Halloween decorations, i guess) so it was a mess all caught up on the thorny branches of this plant. This is our first home, so gardening is a recent (and surprising) new favorite hobby of mine so any help would be appreciated!! Also, its hard to see in the picture but it looks like tiny little flower buds are beginning to appear.

Blackberry or raspberry, right? Now that you say that - it does look like my raspberry Bush I had planted in my old garden. And that would explain the runners. It's in a flower garden in the front of my house though- seems like a weird place for the previous owners to put it but hey - I'll happily eat them if that's what they are!! Thanks for replying.

Often times birds eat the berries elsewhere and 'deliver' them in unexpected places. I thank my chickens for the mixed berry patch near my house.

Agree with some kind of Rubus. When it makes flowers & berries, its' ID may become apparent.
