The garden is now runnerbeanless, almost hollyhockless and has collapsing brussels. So several of my tasks this week didn’t generate photo opportunities. Meanwhile, I will need to get out the combine harvester again to mow the lawn. Last week it had grown so much I was emptying the box every couple of minutes. This week it appears almost as long, still, the compost heap appreciates the clippings.
Here are this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
The begonia of the week. I bought them to replace the droopy cornflowers a few weeks ago and they have been/are stunning.
I know I said almost hollyhockless, this is why. It has flowered late and is only about 60cm tall but a beautiful colour. (Perennial geranium still going.😀)
I know, I know, not that rose again! I just thought it looked as though it was on its first flowering of early summer. So many buds to come.
The rudbeckia has been beside, or in the background of, other featured flowers, but it deserves to feature in its own right. It goes on for weeks and weeks.
The sedum is starting to show some colour as is the blue shrub at the front. Meanwhile, that rose has masses of buds, too.
The Potato Saga continues…….Chapters 2 and 3. We are eating them rather quickly, they are very tasty. I thought I had dug up the best of the crop from the 5 old potatoes I planted, but the next two diggings produced over 1 kilogram each – even without the slugs 😝. The ones still to be harvested are showing a few green ones on the surface. Unfortunately, they were so closely planted (me thinking they wouldn’t all oblige) that I couldn’t see under the foliage where I had earthed them up. I’m hoping there are still plenty of edible ones under the surface.
That’s it again. Have a good weekend and enjoy your garden.
