Into August already, goodness. I spent Tuesday morning in the river sorting the weeds on my side since we have shared responsibility with the council, called “riparian rites”, I think I mentioned it before. It is the first time I have ventured down there since we had a concrete wall put in to stop our riverbank collapsing. The brown bin was completely filled, plus, I saved a bucket full of Horse Tail to make the stew that Fred showed us last week. 😋😉
After that exciting start, I will proceed to this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
The gladioli are starting to show their true colours. I planted them 2 or 3 years ago but this year they are bigger than before and showing more buds.
The first picking. They were very nice too.
I removed the cornflowers from the troughs and replaced them with these begonias from a local garden centre. I think of them as municipal garden plants really, but they do look very nice. (Yes, he decided to get into the photo.)
……and after. I hope the other side will be done soon.
Well, I like the bog standard crocosmia. It’s much brighter than it looks here.
This dahlia should be opening soon. The others are well behind as I mentioned recently.
I understand that my link wasn’t working properly last week, we will see how it goes this time.
Have a good weekend and enjoy your garden.
