A Garden I Tend

Does this in the summer

My tending helps ensure that it happens assuming all other conditions have been and continue to be right.

Things do happen. Something or someone plowed through the Green-headed Coneflower, Rudbeckia laciniata, smashing half of this year's display. A flower thief has been known to rip flowers right off the plants in this garden. I'd mind less if they used a pair of scissors or clippers. Ripping them off is just rude.

Only the gardener knows or notices any troubles. The garden is lush and diverse. It always blooms on in abundance.

Don't like blooms taken that way either. Much better if clipped.

You "tend" well....too bad about the "takers"!

Nice bark, too!
