Six-on-Saturday 18-06-2022

We are off out later so another quick Six-on-Saturday, but not quite as quick as Mr Propagator’s. The week has been sunny here but is due to break today so maybe the water butt I showed last week will fill up. It is the only one that is “high” enough in the garden to enable me to attach the hose and water the vegetables at the bottom of the garden.

1)

“I can’t believe it’s that tall either!” Yes, it’s still growing. ๐Ÿคจ

2)

On the subject of tall plants, this has been mentioned before, but it self-seeded last year, survived the winter, is in probably no more than a couple of centimetres of soil and has had no special treatment so, clearly, has thrived. ๐Ÿค”

3)

The Peace rose is doing its best again. It looks good every year.

4)

Another rose that improves every year.

5)

A few of the lavender plants have died leaving some gaps in the hedge. Meanwhile, the Potentilla is flowering but not looking as healthy, but another ash seedling has appeared right in the middle of it! Maybe I will dig them both up. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

6)

In the front garden, the Salvia Hot Lips is turning darker now the weather is warming up.

Not much new in the garden this week but with the roses and penstemon opening out, there should be plenty of colour until well into the autumn.

Have a good weekend whateveryou may be doing. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿˆโ€โฌ›๐Ÿ…๐ŸŒน๐Ÿฆ‹๐ŸŒค๐Ÿƒ

    1. We have had a few cats over the years and all but one have been the B&W variety. Yes, the roses do well in the clay soil but there’s lots of deadheading to do especially on the Rhapsody in Blue.

  1. Rosa Peace is my favourite rose and always does well in my garden. The flower of mine doesnโ€™t seem to be as strongly coloured as yours. Maybe itโ€™s a hemisphere thing. I hope you get some rain soon.

  2. Roses are looking really good and healthy! I tried hollyhocks here, just got tons of massive leaves as the clay is too fertile for them so I think yours chose the right conditions. The best ones here grow in cracks in the pavement!

    1. He likes to supervise all the work I do in the garden. In this hot weather, he will sit under the wheelbarrow in the shade but never far away. Thank you for your comment.
