Tonight I cut down all of my Shasta daisies, orange lilies, and most of the pink mallow. Few things look as bad as Shasta daisies when they finish blooming. I have a lot of them and it's a big job, so I cut down even those that still looked good, just to get it done. The globe thistle (spikey spheres below) are almost ready to turn blue.


  1. I am going to get thistles next year.. I tried to grow them once but didn't have any luck. Yeah, I can have trouble with THISTLES of all things!

  2. I left this question/comment before (but not sure on which blog), so forgive me if this is a repeat.

    Is it normal for Shasta daisies to shrivel up and die after blooming? I've never had them before. I am afraid I overwatered them and caused them to die.

  3. Kasmira, the flowers die, but the foliage should still be nice and green.


I appreciate you taking the time and effort to leave a comment. I will try to answer any questions you have. Please note due to Blogger changing word verification so almost nobody can read it, I have had to change to no word verification and only allow registered users to comment.
