We’ve enjoyed a dry spell with lots of sunshine in the week. I’ve took this opportunity to get out in the garden. Planting, hoeing, weeding and cleaning the concrete paths. The path cleaning is a job that’s going to take some time to complete but looking better than it has for many a year.
This post has been produced on my phone whilst away from my home city. Hence limited plants to show.
On with Six on Saturday.
1) Lysimachia clethroides
A small clump of fresh growth from this plant which is part of a larger clump. Perhaps ready for splitting up next year to replant in other areas. Produces white flowers on long clusters that look like a gooseneck.
2) Acer, palmatum.
I know a second week’s appearance. This acer does really well this time of year. The deep red freshly opened leaves looking splendid in the sunshine. Prone to the wind causing the leaves dehydrate.
3) Wild Violet
This Violet is beginning to be a nuisance this year, as has begun to invade the lawn. A pretty flower with endless flowers however the lawn mower has seen these off for the time beIng.
4) Clematis, ‘Guernsey Cream’
Since I began clearing the overgrown garden it’s been a mission to ensure this clematis remains in place but not hampered by the Winter Jasmine which is a bully. This year the clematis has produced many buds, so many impossible to count. Therefore plenty of blooms to show off very soon.
5) Viola. Mixed pack blues and yellows.
Couldn’t resist these bought from the supermarket. They always make a cheerful display. This is one of the recently opened flowers.
6) Narcissus, ’Sun Disc’
Okay no actual bloom however it can be seen developing inside its protective case. The flower size is very small and will provide some sunshine on part of a dull wall once they’re in bloom. More to come from this narcissus in future posts.
That’s it for this week’s Six on Saturday. To our host of Six on Saturday, The Propagator, thank you. Pop over to see the delights on his blog and view blogs from around the world. Until next week’s #SixonSaturday all the best and happy gardening.
