Happy New Year! Well, we all hope that is going to be the case. GGHI and I stayed up to see the “bells”, but there wasn’t much on the television to welcome the year in………not even on BBC Scotland. It will be better next New Year without Covid restrictions?
Anyway, here’s the first Six-on-Saturday from me for 2021.
No, it’s a different, darker pink cactus. We received an unexpected extra present this week from our daughter in Dubai “just to keep Christmas going a bit longer”, she said, nice bucket as well.
This camellia, which I have had for several years, had at least 6 buds on a few weeks ago. They are gradually falling off one by one. You can see a couple beneath the leaves. I still don’t know what colour the flowers are. 🤔
I have planted the 8 zonal pelargoniums from the hanging baskets into the tomato bed in the greenhouse. It has no heating so we shall see if they survive.
We have a very tall house plant on our landing which needed to be pruned. I put 2 of the cuttings in a jar of water in the greenhouse and one on the windowsill in the conservatory. Since the water in this jar is frozen, I don’t think these will do very well!
5) This is where it gets exciting!
A few weeks ago I planted some cloves of garlic in the raised vegetable bed. I counted 4 this week and you can see 2 of them here trying to peer out over the snow.
6)…….and, even more exciting, if possible,🎉🎊…..
FRED’S SWEET PEAS!! I planted 16 of them about 3 weeks ago and, if you look carefully, you can see one in the first picture and two in the second appearing. Thanks again, Fred.
I did a little weeding this week and my usual companion appeared.
That’s it again. Very best wishes to all of you. Thank you for the “likes” and comments. Look after yourselves and have a good weekend.
