I mowed the lawn yesterday for the first time in at least a fortnight. It “lifts” the whole garden. I keep thinking that finding 6 items will be too much of a challenge but each week I have to make difficult decisions. Anyway, so much to cut back, as Mr P says, but so much colour still – I’ll give it another week or two before I dive in with the secateurs.
Here are this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
Begonia of the week again. The 4 troughs are still looking good, so 🤞no frost for a while yet.
I mentioned to Pádraig I would show another picture of this blue salvia which, although a slow starter, has flowered on and on for several weeks.
Well, I’m convinced it’s early summer…….what further proof do I need? The gladiolus may be a red or orange colour? We’ll see next week.
Here’s one for Paul. Hope you are well and hope to see your blog again soon.
You may remember that I bought a clematis from Morrisons several weeks ago. Well, I was robbed! It cost £1.80, but last week, Aldi were selling a similar one for £1.69! I’m not sure where I will put it but that’s not the point, is it?
I mentioned this disaster last week. I don’t think there is a problem with the wood rotting, it’s the nails that have come loose. Any screws are quite secure. It’s drying out in the garage ready to be put together sometime in the winter.
I showed the beautiful golden tree in the cemetery last week. Here is a closer look, Jim, for identification purposes.
It is an even deeper gold colour now.
Have a good weekend. I must get out to the garden, if it doesn’t rain today, so I may not look at all the other posts for a while.
