Dead head for continued colour

my front garden border was a mass of colour last week, but the rose heads have all gone over now, and it's all looking very green.  I should have got out there the weekend before last and used my secateurs to take off all the faded flower heads, and i'd have another round of buds by now, but I missed my chance, and now i'll be lucky to get a second round of flowers.  Dead heading is an easy task, and one that can be done with a glass of wine in the other hand, but it is a job that needs doing on every balmy summer evening if you are to keep your plants at their best.
