It’s been a difficult week. Not a great deal gardening actually done. Done some tidying up though. Have some bulbs for the spring show. I’ll start planting later this week into next week. New plants arrived ready for the summer next year. Let’s get on with Six on Saturday.
2) Geranium, Cranesbill. I spotted this earlier this week giving its best to flower and by the looks of it it’s been doing it well albeit without me realising. Great to see some colour in the garden. Hoping I’ll have a benefactor for some of the blue variety soon.
3) Viburnum, Bodnantense. The shrub has been flowering for quite some time off but seems to have put on quite a show because there are still lots of flowers to come. It’s been quite a bonus for some weeks now, so hoping it will still flower in the winter when it supposed to be flowering.
4) Philadelphus, Mock Orange. Yet again, here is another shrub that is decided that it can still flower. And it’s very welcome nice to see something right at the back of the garden it’s deep green the eaves and very white flowers. The shrubs I’ve just mentioned including the Mock Orange I need of some attention of cutting back but that’s to be dealt with at some stage. One thing I’m certain of is that I’m pleased that things are really growing nicely.
5) Spirea, Bridlewreath. And here is the third one that’s flowering out of season. The dotted around here and there but he is just a small selection of what I can see again it’s a white flower.
6) Common Ivy. I’m not sure where this one came from because I never planned to do it. It may be from next door I wouldn’t be surprised in the least bit. But nonetheless it’s not causing any harm at least not now. Might get in the way at some stage so out it comes as and when. But a welcome sight and probably helpful to some of our native insects too.
