pruning, a little planting

Got outside for a bit to plant the rest of the geraniums -- according to the tag with one, they are Zonal Geranium 'Red Satisfaction'.  Pruned some of the roses.  'La Reine' is very slowly starting to show leaf buds.  I don't remember it being so far behind the others last year.  Pruned off a still-living shoot of the Jacobite rose -- the bottom of the cane looked very dead, but the top was leafed out.  Did the same for a small branch of 'Botzaris', but there's plenty more 'Botzaris'.  Cut the tall grass around that one, 'Comtesse de Murinais' and the Autumn Damask.  Autumn Damask and 'Leda' have small new growth coming from the bottom, although all the canes from last year and before were dead.  Will have to see if they're actually the rose or just the understock.  Both canes of 'Konigin von Danemark' are still alive.  Should have a flower or two from that.  Enjoyed the fragrance of the white lily-of-the-valley -- I'm making it a point to get over there to them when I'm in the backyard during the day, while they are blooming.
