We’ve enjoyed a dry spell with lots of sunshine in the week, yet again. This Saturday morning is another great sunny start though cold. Last weekend was a long weekend away in sunny London so did nothing in the garden and not much since. This weekend I have a job and a half on with weeding and planting and still lots of clearing of the bottom part of the garden from overgrown shrubs and invading unwanted plants. Well, less of what I have to do on with the last of the month’s Six on Saturday.
1) Narcissus, ‘Sun Disc’
A small narcissus that flowers for a long time. This group are in a container on the garage wall as they where last year. This is the second year and they are quite early compared to last year. Last week they where still in tight bud but when I got home they had begun the bloom.
2) Clematis, Guernsey Cream.
Another showing of the this clematis except in bloom. Amazing what happens whilst one is away. It’s been in the garden many years and does quite well well. The trouble is the snails like the buds too. This year there’s not so much damage and there’s many more flowers too.
3) Erysimum, Apricot Delight’.
These plants are a fave of mine as they produce flowers over a long period and this particular one has bright apricot/orange flowers that light up a large area, it has tendency to flop/spread.
4) Narcissus, ‘After All’
A large white petalled flower with orange edged cup.
5) Iris, Blue.
I don’t know the variety of this iris. Still in tight bud but it’s the first time in two years they have flowered and looking like plenty of flowers to come. It may be more of a pond marginal but is doing well where situated. Next week or so will have something to show off here.
6) Hosta, ‘White Feather’
Unusual leaf colour for a hosta I believe. Some leaves now turning green but the early leaves show little green and have the shape of a large feather.
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.
