Rather late this week. We entertained and fed 9 people yesterday and have 7 today and tomorrow. Good fun but rather a lot of catering! Then this morning I went on the Parkrun, as usual, but took my daughter and two grandchildren. Well, you would think they would have the manners to wait for me, but no, my granddaughter even had the nerve to lap me!
Enough of that – the garden is nearly colourful again. A couple of my pictures show flowers about to bloom. Here are my Six-on-Saturday.
The (slightly blurred) gladiolus is forming buds. I planted many of them in groups, but not many are showing buds, yet.
The sedum (I know we call it something different now but I always think of it as sedum) is showing a slight pink haze. The bees and other insects are showing a keen interest already.
Raspberries are now doing well. Very nice on a simple cheesecake or frozen to make jam at a later date.
You may remember that I complained that something had demolished my broccoli plants and all but one looked like this, or worse, well, now all but one look like this……..
…or better! Very pleasing!
Apples are looking good but not nearly ready yet.
This rose bush was in a sorry state earlier in the season. I think I showed it when it was starting to pick up – it certainly has now!
Do I hear cries of “Welcome back!” or groans of “Not again!”? Well, I am pleased to see it. It is slightly smaller than the original flowering but worth having.
That’s it, again. The family have gone to a football match with Granny’sGardenHimIndoors and last time I checked, their team was losing! Oh dear, the youngsters take it so seriously!
Have a good weekend and I hope I shall have time to read the other posts.
