Ok, enough bulbs for tonight. I'll finish with some seed heads from my poppies adding some winter interest to the garden 😊 #seedheads #poppy #papaversomniferum #opiumpoppy #wintergarden

I love keeping many of my perennials as visual interest through winter! The critters and birds that are still hanging out love them too! What do you do with them?

Lucky birds to have found your garden 😊 It's interesting, this year I followed the advice of doing less "tidying up" in the garden and I can't believe how many more bird visitors I've noticed than before....will definitely do this next fall again πŸ‘

Hi Elisa πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‹πŸΌ - hope you are enjoying your trip to the UK. The poppies lasted only a couple of days - I always find you have to be quick to catch them otherwise the petals have fallen and you miss them. Got some great fat seadheads forming now. I'll collect a couple of my favourites and leave the rest to the birds to peck at - it's a great sight to see 😁

Good to know, I'd like to plant some next year and then maybe the birds can be the seed sowers 😊 Thanks, Rich, having a wonderfully busy time over here and the garden/plant looking is a feast for my eyes!😍
