Good Reason For a Wild and Ratty Garden
I really do try to keep on top of dead heading the spent blossoms in my garden, but to be completely honest, it always gets ahead of me!! One of my rationalizations for allowing this to happen is the food source provided for the creatures of the garden by the spent blossoms, especailly when they go to seed.
Do you see her?
She is holding on to the back of the Purple Cone Flower seed head enjoying a delectible treat.
As I was moving closer and reseting my camera, her partner moved in- just like a guy!!
But he was very pleased to sit and pose for me!! So, all in all I now am convinced that I will miss wonderful opportunities to see wonderful wildlife in my garden if I am too quick to clean up!!!
