Hi Lisa!

My name is Lisa too.

I have a question for you that has zero to do with gardening.  Did you used to live in the Houston area?  I knew a Lisa Dent there, met her once but remember the name.  She brought me an injured cardinal she found in her yard and I was the closest bird rehabber to her.  Was that you?  Small world if it was.

Hi Lisa, Do you know what type the rose is? Any major pruning should have been done in the late fall. If you cut it back that drastically it will be a set back. If it's a climbing rose or a rambler there will not be any flowers this season. It takes several years to develop flowers on the climbers. The blooms grow on old wood. Does this answer your question? Let me know if you need more info?

Lisa I am a big fan of Roses. I see you like Irises too. They are my next favorite flower. I like to see the pictures of out peoples gardens. You get new Ideas. Your question on the wild violets is a difficult one because they self seed. Even if you dig them up they will come back. I love them personally but I understand your frustration.
Send them my way. LOL
