Well, the weather took a change with rain, thunderstorms, lightning, flooding. Oh the wonderful British weather. Though the rain is needed. I’ve spent much time clearing the bottom end of the garden so it doesn’t get too bad. Also, I need to get to the fence panels to replace them soon. As you can see in the first pictures there’s a lot of plums fallen from the neighbours tree!!! Plum crumble for dessert. It doesn’t fruit like this very often once a decade I think. Time spent collecting them and keeping the best for crumble, mmmm. Well, ….

… it’s time for Six on Saturday.

  1. Plums! This is the tree, neighbours, that overhangs the greenhouse though many branches removed earlier in the year. However there’s an abundance of tiny plums.

2) Hydrangea, ‘Vanille Fraise’. Turning pink now and looking rather splendid.

3) Zebra Grass, ‘Zebrinus’. This is the first time in many years I have seen this in it’s full glory as for many years it’s been surrounding by overgrown Hebe and bindweed

4) Lysimachia clethroides – gooseneck loosestrife. This is another of the plants I had given me from back in the autumn last year. Managed to get two out of the clump. I am quite liking this too. Unusual arching flower stem with lots of tiny white flowers.

5) Heuchera, ‘Rio’. Deep red of this Heuchera is particularly striking now it’s started to grow well again after being in the nursery. It is now in the ground as it was in a pot for a few years. Got plenty of space now so why not plant it.

6) Courgette flower. I have been waiting so long for courgettes but soon as I get to check they have mysteriously gone. Slimy foe are on the go all the time. But, this flower looking good.
