There are several towering, ancient lilacs on this lot. I quit deadheading the flowers, which anyhow were out of convenient reach, after I learned that birds like to eat the seeds.
I actively foster the weed plantain because birds like those seeds, too. The sere weeks of late summer present roaming flocks with a seed buffet of clover, oregano, and miscellaneous dried volunteers. Any time I look out into the garden, someone’s out there feeding.
