deadhead

I still have several garden-related posts in the pipeline, so I've extended gardening month(s) on this blog through June.

To keep my flowers looking like this


I do a lot of this.


I don't even want to know the number of hours I spend deadheading flowers. I peruse my planting boxes and beds before and after work each day. As you know, I value tidiness, and removing dead flowers encourages new blooms.

It takes a lot of time, but I can't imagine my life (or my yard) without flowers.
