Hello again here we are another week gone by. Well at least the weather has had some kind of respite from the rain and this week I spent a good couple of days in the garden. Albeit, was more construction than anything. I’ve now begun the replacement of the fence panels I’m only intending to replace the worst of the old panels, at this stage, one more to do at the moment. The shed roof did get re-felted though. Looking forward, in a strange way to be able to use the shed again. Yes, it needs a bit of clearing out. I’m waiting for warm weather to dry it out a little bit better. But it’s storing bags of potting compost right now along with usual many old pots and such like. Greenhouse yet to be completed with cleaning, a job for the weekend perhaps.
I am continuing a feature, on each Friday, view(s) of the garden I am trying to transform or develop. When you have a moment please check it out.
Okay, fellow gardeners, time for this weeks Six on Saturday.
1) Narcissus. a small group of narcissus that have just this week come into flower. Like many of the bulbs they’re new to the garden. Eventually, to be planted with taller growing plants in this newly created area of the garden. The shrub behind, Hebe, will be cut back more so to give room for a few more plants. What do we want – more plants.
2) Daffs and a Grass. These deaths were a bonus because they are mixed in from a shrub perennial of some description I can’t remember what it is was given to me last summer autumn. In front of them is one of the grasses, bought last autumn, but sstill waiting to be planted.
3) Forsythia. The Forsythia is always the first brilliant display of spring in the front garden it dominates completely. Later, there will be blue Muscari and Tulips at the base of the shrub.
4) Primrose elatior ‘Mister Gold Laced’. This was given to me recently and I had to include it this week because it’s such a bright cheerful little plant of the Primrose family and I have a perfect place for it because I have a cast-iron Wall hanging pot holder which would be perfect for this plant. Trouble is I haven’t had the time to really think about where it will go or actually get on with the job.
5) Plum tree in bloom. This Plum tree brings an amazing amount of small flowers for quite a long time, depends on the weather though. But this week when I took this photograph the bees, hundreds of bees were buzzing around taking the nectar.
6) Pieri, Formosan, Forest Flame. As the name suggest the leaves of this shrub will turn red later in the year – quite dramatic too. For now the small but many flowers, still in bud, will be a welcome site.
That’s this weeks Six on Saturday. Whatever you’re doing be safe and ensure that you enjoy your gardening or what ever you do.
