The garden took another battering this week. The runner beans and several gladioli were horizontal on Wednesday evening but I staked them up and they seem none the worse for it. I think the beans are just about over anyway.
On we go to this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
The dahlia, probably the only dahlia this year, but it survived the winds and rain and is still rather striking.
A couple of restaked gladioli looking good behind an “about to flower” coreopsis, I think.
The Rhapsody in Blue is still going strong and producing even more buds.
The Japanese anemone looks better than usual this year. I did threaten it with a large 3 pronged fork a little while ago and it seems to have pulled its socks up. That 🐝 is happy with it.
Remember that dianthus? It’s come back again after “the chop”, although I think it looks slightly paler.
The wind removed some of the begonia blooms. Looking at it more closely, it’s a really beautiful thing.
Finally, on Thursday morning I noticed the hanging basket hanging from the fig tree……then I saw why.
Out with the drill and screwdriver then.
Have a good weekend. I will see today whether the next digging of potatoes yields as much as the first.
