Garden Tuesday – Deadheading

Non deadhead flower. Guess who didn’t deadhead their flowers?

Purple coneflowers for everyone. And who will be scolding herself when the million little babies sprout up this spring?

I give up, what's deadheading and wouldn't it be a good thing to have a million little flowers???

Marjie said...

Well, at least you have something to look at in winter!

Right there with ya. I almost never clean up my yard before winter sets in.

I didn't do mine, either - but when it snowed, the birds were really glad of the seeds (even though we feed them regularly - there seem to be some bird species which enjoy flower seeds but not the bird seed we buy...)

Who didn't? I didn't!

Mimi said...

I may be a deadhead, but i didn't deadhead.

I saw the title and thought this post was going to be about how Grateful Dead fans grow marijuana ;)

Cindy said...

I don't deadhead the late blooming Echinacea either. The visiting Goldfinches love 'em.

Just wait until the spring and summer when they are in full bloom for all to see.

Was looking at your blog today and noticed a FB page, promptly added it. :)

Have a wonderful day!!
