It seems as though we should have a few hot days this week – back to watering again. Nothing new happening in the garden just now but it still looks quite colourful.
Anyway, here are this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
The clematis climbing up the old plum tree has had a couple of week’s rest and is off again with plenty of blooms and plenty of buds. It started in the spring and hasn’t really stopped since.
I usually pull out the feverfew but this one escaped and is a nice splash of white. (The perennial geranium looks pretty behind it.)
The hydrangea is turning autumnal. The colours look more vibrant in real life.
Begonia of the week. There are some pure white ones in the troughs but this one is a soft, creamy colour.
Chapter 4 of the potato saga (with guest appearance from the raspberries). Again, I got quite excited about the quantity from one old potato. It’s a shame our younger grandchildren don’t visit now, due to the restrictions, it was lovely how they enjoyed potato gathering.
Here is a trailer from next week’s final installment.
I know, frightening 😱 isn’t it? Will there be as many edible ones underground, or will they all go onto the compost heap? Tune in to see the happy/sad finale. 🙄🤨🥱😴
That salvia Mr Propagator doesn’t reckon he gave me is such a beautiful blue. I showed it before but it hadn’t as many blooms on it.
Just sneaking in a long shot.
There may be only the one dahlia but it does “shine out” in the garden. I’m going to dig up the ones that have been trimmed by the local molluscs and start them in the greenhouse next year. I will plant them out once they are too tough to be palatable.🤞
That’s it for this week. I attempted to stake the Brussels which were blown over a couple of weeks ago but they have now fallen onto the broccoli.
Oh, well, last try next year. There are plenty of sprouts but they are as “holey” as the leaves.
Have a good weekend in your garden.
