One day a week I make my way around the whole garden deadheading all of the flowers. Here are the results of my rounds this week. In the fall, as the plants close in on their final bloom, I leave all of the remaining flowers go and collect as many of the seeds as I can of my favorite flowers. 🙏 It may sound strange, but I have come to consider deadheading as a form of meditation. First, there is the patience involved in such a simple but repetitive task. Then there is the slow and quiet pace of making one’s way around the garden. And finally, there is the centering of life’s endings making way for life’s beginnings.
