It’s a quick Six On Saturday this the last of the month. Lots going on in the garden but work been thwarted by squally weather and other projects taking me away from the garden. Hope you enjoy. Time to move on or back more the point as we go into dark times (why?). Time goes back for UK one hour.
…. it’s on with the week’s Six on Saturday
1) Winter Jasmine.
Heres’ a close-up shot of the winter jasmine that was taken after dark. A different pic altogether from many that I have been posted in the past. There are many hundreds of flowers on these shrubs but they ten to get a little lost in the branches. Time for a today up, soon.
2) Flowering Cherry Tree.
One branch and a few leaves changing colour in autumnal shades.
3) Rose, Sweet Honey.
Continues to give great blooms and in abundance. Some here just about to break open. Hoping it will be so much better next year too. It’s great for hedges too if you’ve a mind to have a rose hedge.
4) Leadwort or Ceratostigma.
A small plant in a plant pot that’s been doing well for years until this year when I neglected it a bit. There may not have been many of the blue flowers however, it has produced this awesome red foliage.
These four are survivors of the six I managed to keep from seedlings back in the early summer and never got around to planting on. They’re in the greenhouse for now but will move them to warmer climate soon. Unknown variety.
6) Viburnum tinus, ‘Dawn’
This shrub was destined to be removed as it became infested with the beetle that has given the leaves a very lacy look and not in a nice way. However, it seems to have become greener leaved and is now producing flowers. It’s got a a stay of execution for now.
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. To our host of Six on Saturday, The Propagator, thank you to him. Pop over to see the delights on his blog and view blogs from around the world. Until the next week’s #SixonSaturday, all the best. May pop in with the odd Post of the Day, too. Watch out for occasional view of the garden in development on Fridays. (Last update: Friday 22nd October 2021)
