Stupendous weather that we have had here in the Midlands, Nottingham, UK. With another small heatwave0 Done more in the garden and been getting areas ready for the big spring bulb planting. I ordered some spring flowering bulbs early this year for a change but they’ve not arrived as yet. More jobs to do in the garden, harvesting toms, pots, beans, courgettes not so bad but could have been better earlier on. Okay…..

… it’s time for Six on Saturday.

1) Begonia.
It’s a yellow begonia 🙂 Doing very well with the half dozen I bought a few months back. Very cheerful.

Begonia – Yellow

2) Nerine Bowdenii.
The African Lily that has flowered for the second year, hurrah.

3) Tomato, Millions
Not quite millions of tomatoes but this plant has kept producing tiny sweet tomatoes that seem to get eaten before they arrive at the kitchen!

4) Rosa, ‘Dame Judy Dench’.
At last this rose has now started to be less prostrate and produce stiff stems that enable to see the flowers at the best. Good scent and very nice foliage too.

5) Dahlia – Small decorative.
This has been quietly producing colour over the last month in a tub next to the front door. Loads of buds for more of a show in the coming months until the dreaded first frost.

6) Buddlejia
There’s been a great deal of plumes of flowers from this ‘generic’ Buddlejia growing on the front garden. This is one that’s low down enough to photograph easily. It’s a shame they go over so easily. The butterflies have been loving this shrub as always.


That’s it for this week’s Six on Saturday. Whatever you’re doing be safe and ensure that you enjoy your gardening or what ever you do.
