Before I go any further, those of you who were getting excited about seeing the other half of the fruit cage today I am afraid will be disappointed. 😪 I have had a heavy cold this week 🤧 and we have had our lovely daughter and granddaughter from Dubai staying for a few days while they visited her twin sons at their universities in Durham and in Bristol. (I think those excuses will do, won’t they?)
Yesterday, I noticed the first of my daffodils showing colour, so here we go with this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
Small but very pretty. The forget-me-nots and perennial geranium plants are looking healthy too.
The daffodil/lavender hedge is promising. These are the ones where I only get about 50% of them opening. I will watch what happens this year.
The clematis Montana (first photo) is showing plenty of leaves and several flower buds now. The clematis Jackmanii is showing many leaf buds now. I may have mentioned that I was concerned that I had cut it back too far and removed too many buds. The same thing has happened every year for the last 15 years or so, I should be more optimistic.
Little, yellow crocuses looking good. The forget-me-nots and the perennial geranium plants are also very healthy. 🤭
The pulmonaria is always a welcome, different colour at this time of year.
This has been in amongst other bits and pieces in my greenhouse for years. It is 6 or 7cm long. It was my mother’s but I don’t know whether it is for the greenhouse (where it was found) or for the sewing/knitting box. It isn’t for French knitting – you know, where 4 little nails are hammered into the top of a wooden cotton reel and you form a long, thin, knitted, woolen tube by manoeuvring the yarn under the stitches of the previous row…….mind you, I can’t remember ANY uses at all for a long, thin, knitted, woolen tube!
That’s it again. Have a good weekend and let’s hope we can enjoy the garden for a little while anyway.
