Good morning! It is a lovely day here and maybe I will get out into the garden soon. In 3 weeks time, our Little Soldier* gets married so there are a few minor alterations needed to our lovely, nearly daughter-in-law’s dress and to the Little Soldier’s suit jacket, so Granny is a bit busy indoors just now.
Very pleased to see Mr Kingdon is back, but I hope he is careful with all that digging and cutting back! It looks rather daunting and very hard work.
This week, I have tried to put in some original photos but it is becoming difficult, although the garden itself is looking different due to the plants being at further stages or second flushes (I hope that makes sense.) I am pleased that Mr Kingdon is keeping a couple of perennial geranium plants, mine are still going… yippee!!
Here is my Six-on-Saturday for this week. Have a good weekend.
*Our Little Soldier is a very good looking, 6’3″ young man – well relatively young! ( At least, he was 6’3″ when he left home but our lovely, nearly daughter-in-law says that he is 6’2″! I’m not happy about that!)
The rather disappointing geraniums are showing a decent amount of colour now so I hope we don’t get any frost for a few weeks.
The view at the other side of the garden. A different “blue” shrub and the sedum is nearly in full colour.
Well, I did tell you that there were only two gladioli that had flowered, but, walking down the garden, I noticed this!!!
a) I planted only dwarf gladioli, (that’s a 6′ fence), and
b) I am sure it wasn’t there yesterday!
The tumbling, fragrant begonia which doesn’t tumble, nor is there any perfume, is quite pretty beside the greenhouse door.
This mimulus usually spreads further but, in the spring, I had to dig it up to get at a dandelion which was growing right in the middle of it. I think I got rid of the dandelion but it knocked the plant back a bit. ((The perennial geranium looking good for next year!)
This one’s for Lora! These are two seedlings which I moved a few weeks ago hoping they would survive. Clearly they have. The flowers are small and do not open out all at once, but, I like the structure of the plant anyway.
That’s it for another week. Looking forward to seeing your Sixes-on-Saturday, as always.
