Burnished

Astilbe

There are worthy reasons to wait until spring to cut back spent flowers.  The seed heads provide both food and shelter for wildlife and the perished vegetation offers the plant a modicum of protection from the elements.

But when the sun dances across burnished flowers on a crisp winter’s day, surely that is reason enough.

  1. You are liking that new camera. 🙂 And we seem to be having a lot of un-seasonally sunny (and warm) days this November. I can’t remember lugging a watering can around this late for so many years that I literally can’t remember! The forecast predicts the first overnight frost around here next week. We’ll see.

    • Even here they are suggesting -1, again, we will see. Not quite got to grips with the new camera yet, there are a lot of duff photos that no one sees before they go to the big bin in the sky. Will keep working on it! Keep warm 🙂
