These Saturdays come around so quickly, we can’t do anything about it so let’s do Six-on-Saturday again.
Mr Propagator says his petals have blown away but he gave me some seeds a few years ago and mine are doing very nicely, thank you.
These little troughs at either side of the front door are filled with the bedding plants I bought from our milkman, of course.
I was rather worried when I saw these pretty purple flowers growing inside the Mexican Orange blossom. Unless I’m mistaken, they sre Deadly Nightshade. Needless to say, they are not there any more.
The jackmanii has started and will be flowering non-stop for a few months. I start off carefully removing deadheads but it becomes a full time job after a little while.🙄
Last year I bought a couple of pinks and put them in pots with silver leafed plants. They survived the winter outside but I removed the silver plants and put the pinks together this week. They are fine and smell lovely.
The first hollyhocks and the Lychnis Coronaria are flowering now. I don’t know why this hollyhock is only about 1 metre tall whereas the one against the conservatory is still growing at well over 2 metres! The conservatory one isn’t flowering yet though.
That’s it for this week. Have a good weekend in your garden. 👩🌾 🌺🍅🌹🦋🐛🐦🐈⬛🌤🙂
