|From this side of the bed they don't look bad|
|They're such pretty flowers|
|The flower color even looks good with the blue of Centaurea montana and the acid yellow of Alchemilla mollis|
|And the seedpods are sure fun to look at|
|I should have painted a face on this one|
|But the flower color clashes horribly with the lavender of Clematis 'Josephine' at the other end of the bed|
|When the flowers shatter they leave a mess|
For a time, maybe a couple of weeks, they'll leave a big open spot in the bed. But soon new foliage starts to come up.
|New foliage already coming up|
|Neighboring plants always look a fright for a while too!|
Do you have any messes to clean up in your garden already?
