Rain yesterday, at last. The garden is desperately in need of a good soaking (I know, I’ll regret saying that at some stage). Not much new outside but plenty of buds and shoots.
Here are this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
The berberis is a lovely colour and (this is always exciting) there is that definite reddish tint to the buds on the tamarisk tree. They go nicely with the wild garlic at the base.🤬
The euonymous is going berserk. It used to be a neat little shrub but needs to be cut back soon.
The dicentra was only a few shoots last time I looked. Now it’s looking lovely……along with the hellebores, aquilegia, pulmonarias, perennial geraniums, Nerine and a poppy which has sneaked in at the back.
The Solomon’s Seal has suddenly shot up. It lasted through to autumn last year. Will it escape the Solomon’s Seal caterpillars again?
I don’t think you can see the string, but I have had to tie the stalk of that climbing 🌹to one of the supports since it’s growing quite quickly now.
Right, Spot the Difference? They may be Sherbert Blend, but mine are all Sherbert Lemons, so far. (That reminds me, does anyone else remember Sherbert Lemons? I don’t know if you can buy them now, they probably break all the Tooth Health and Safety rules.)
Cowslips are appearing in various parts of the garden – particularly the front lawn. That greenery at the right is Leucanthemum Superbum, I think, (plus incorporated weed) the seeds of which Mr Propagator gave me a couple of years ago.
I managed to take one photo in the sun this week.
You can see the lawn starting to crack beside the slabs. (I don’t think he wants a game of golf, he would rather sunbathe.)
That’s it again. The weather is very dreary today so I might stay indoors, or venture out to the greenhouse.
I read this week that using emojis is only for the aged! What? 🤔😳🙄🤭😀👩🌾😬
Have a good weekend in your garden. 🌷🌼🌶🥒🍅
