Removing faded blooms from Summer flowering plants is essential if you want to prolong blooming. But am I the only one who finds it tedious? But with some flowers, like these Poppy seed heads, it is really easy. Each little pod in shades of soft bluey green through to pale olive is a mini work of art. So until I actually want them to make seed which I will collect for re-sowing next year I just lose myself in their gentle beauty.
Happy dead-heading everyone!
