Don't Mess With This Gardener!
Here's what happens when you finish blooming in my garden! You get whacked.
And indeed that's what I did the other day to this Geranium macrorrhizum. Whacked it right back because the silly damn thing had decided it was finished blooming.
So now - it will start regrowing and bloom again in September.
That pile of leaves to the left used to be on top of the plant - and now they're in the compost pile.
Don't mess with me when I've got a pair of pruning shears in my hand.
