Usually we have one or two very warm days in March (temps in the 70s F), and that is when I go outside and clip back all the dead stuff I didn't cut back in the fall.
I hope we get those days soon!
The snow from February had actually almost all melted just before we went to Florida, but while we were in Florida, home was dumped on again with almost 10 inches of snow. Luckily I had had the foresight to hire a snow removal service just for the week we were gone. We only had to pay them if they ended up having to remove snow, so it was risk-free. I think they had to come twice!
