Although I wish they would wait until the flowers are dead first! Looks like our crocosmia are going to be saved from the stress of producing seedheads this year again. They are also very handy for mopping up early windfall apples. Haven't seen a family group in the garden for a while so this trio came as a surprise.
Though I'm sure there are some that will not agree.
I can't see crocosmia, has the little dear/deer had it right down to the ground.
The stag got the crocosmia. He was hiding behind the inula so I didn't see him to begin with but went upstairs to get a better view.
Although he did help with the weeding. How they can eat brambles like that is beyond me. They must have steel lined mouths.
What fab photos. The only things helping me with deadheading are plenty of slugs - only they're picking on my turnip tops rather than the scraggy flowers
