Frequent Flowers My favorite flowers bloom in the garden again and again and again I deadhead my flowers to keep them healthy again and again and again Of frequent flower care I never complain because such beauty graces my back yard again and again and again
It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub and Victoria wants us to take a walk in the garden. I love this prompt because I adore my garden.

Thanking God for the beauty of flowers again and again and again!
That is perfect. I was with my sister last week and she was raving about the care of her window boxes while she was away. She said she has never really seen her flowers grow so good. I said you have to deadhead them all the time. She laughed. She won’t. Hahaha
I’ve been tempted to deadhead flowers I see on my walk because the owners clearly don’t. Then I remember how many I have to care for in my own yard and let it go. 🙂
RIght?!?!?! When I am shopping if I see flowers that need it I instinctually start doing it!
Nice use of repetition, Linda. Don’t you find dead-heading to be such a relaxing, peaceful sort of activity. I do it every night in the flower pots we have on the deck.
Yes, I agree. Very relaxing and it reminds me to think about the One who created the flowers. I don’t do it every night, but at least 3 times a week.
Made me smile.
I moved several flowering plants in pots to an unprotected area. The deer were more than willing to dead head them all for me and they even cleaned up their mess. The plants are fine, just bloom-less. 🙂
Thank you. I just rescued this lovely comment from my spam filter. I haven’t had deer deadhead my flowers, but we did have a squirrel who did a number on one of my dianthus. I guess they have to eat too. 🙂
🙂 We’ll see how it goes.
Thanks for the reminder. I decided to look into my spam folder and rescued a few. 🙂
I so love the burst of positivity in this one, Linda! 💝
Thank you. I just rescued this positive comment from spam! I guess I need to check that more regularly. It seems to be catching more legitimate comments these days.
Don’t you love those flowers that just keep coming back. Do you save your dead head seeds for next year??
I never have because we don’t start too many things with seeds. Spring here is a bit wet and cold. But this year I bought my husband a portable greenhouse so maybe I’ll do that. 😁♥️☀️
That sounds like fun! Good luck!
Oh, this is quite beautiful. I love how positive this poem is, and how there’s the theme of encouraging the flower to bloom through care. That can be applicable to many things in life. Fantastic take on the prompt, it is lovely. ❤
Thank you. My flower garden is the thing that has given me a positive outlook during this difficult time. Flowers are awesome.
