I discovered a new variety of humming bird. It was sitting on the bird bath
I didn't pinch the plants and they grew over 6 feet high.
After strong winds, the plants bended
and then fell.
I need to remember pinching them next year or moving them to the back of the garden. Or just leave them where they are.
They didn't look bad even in front of the perennial bed, although it goes against the rule. What do you think?

P.S. By the way, that bird was small, but we needed to do some cleaning after it.
