Six-on-Saturday 12-06-2021

A bit late again, playing that silly game again and getting a bit sunburnt. So,without further ado, here are my Six-on-Saturday for this week.


Well, could you have just run the mower over them like the rest of the lawn? No, nor could I.


Yes!! Fred’s Sweet peas are flowering like mad.


Fred’s amaranthus hasn’t been planted out yet due to the very hot forecast. However, you can see the tiny plant beginning to flower. It will be put out into the flowerbeds next week.


I took a close look at one of the alliums. At first I thought these were ladybirds but they are buds, I think.


My kind sister brought me some rooted offshoots of a hydrangea she has in her garden. I had complained that the couple she brought me last year were doing nothing this year although they had picked up in the autumn after I had planted them in the flowerbeds. Needless to say, the day before she visited, I noticed plenty of shoots coming from the bases of last year’s. We’ll see how these ones progress


Last year’s zonal pelargoniums (!) from the hanging baskets were planted in the tomato bed in the greenhouse over winter and pretty much neglected. They look fine in these pots outside now.

That’s it for another week. Have a good weekend in your garden and don’t get too hot! 👩‍🌾🦋🌷

  1. I’m happy that the sweet peas are blooming well in your garden! Their deep colour is beautiful and you will see that you will have other colours . Otherwise, the amaranthus need to grow a bit (about 15cm tall) and you can plant them in the garden. (Mine start to bloom for 2 days.)

  2. I haven’t joined SoS for a while, so I’m intrigued as to what ‘that silly game’ might be. I agree about the sweet peas….gorgeous colour.

    1. My husband plays quite a lot of golf and I join him once a week usually for “that silly game”. I will be looking at all the Sixes-on-Saturday later because we are rather busy with grandchildren over the next few days.

  3. Your Fred’s sweet peas are romping away and mine are only just beginning to climb! But I was late sowing them and ended up buying more from a local nursery which looked a lot healthier and were fairly inexpensive. I’ll just buy theirs in future! The pellies are looking good, but I’d say they were the trailing ivy-leaved ones not zonal – well done for keeping them over winter, mine weren’t happy this year.
