I think we have all had a busy or a wet week this week, at least, those are my excuses.
Straight into my Six-on-Saturday because we leave in an hour or so to visit Mr and Mrs Propagator and all their lovely family plus our #2 daughter and all her lovely family who are staying with them!
I had better start with Granny’sGardenHimIndoors’s favourite plant and a bit of colour before he complains again. I like this fuschia very much.
This hanging basket, plus bracket was blown into the fig pot! Fortunately, no damage was done.
Yes, I know I am repeating myself but I am very pleased with the dish underneath the fig tree because for months the water has just drained away every time. I hadn’t anything suitable so I sent away for this and it’s perfect! Meanwhile, I know that there’s usually bits of shredded paper in my compost. I was thinking that it should have rotted down. Then I thought back to last year when I was sorting out thousands of photos (from my parents, Granny’sGardenHimIndoors’s parents and from our family) into albums. There were 100s of duplicates which I duly shredded. Whereas some do rot down, others have a coating (probably plastic!) which doesn’t! Oh dear.
Every picture tells the story! Those winds last weekend broke off the main branch of the apple tree. The blemishes are only skin deep and, with a little lemon juice, I made 1 and a half jars of apple jelly, plus with the earlier harvest of redcurrants, another 3 and a half jars of apple and redcurrant jelly. (I will take one with me to Mr and Mrs Propagator today.)
My indoor sempervivum plants are doing really well outside. Except one – see the gap.
He’s not impressed with the rather rushed Six-on-Saturday.
Have a good weekend. We are off once I’ve put the makeup on…..we may be a bit late!!?
