Return of Six on Saturday

I thought I would have been back amongst the SoSers sooner, but it’s been an altogether miserable winter and although I had one or two flowering plants in January, nothing worthy of a SoS post. 1. Crocuses in containers. Last year I grew the lovely Crocus Chrysanthus ‘Blue Pearl’, ‘Cream Beauty’ and Crocus ‘Orange Monarch’ …

Thoughts on a Tuesday

At this time of year there is not a lot of colour in an English garden, although here in the far south-west green still dominates the landscape and you will still see a few flowers around. For other plants however, this is their time of year to show off. Pineapple Sage is one of them….

Six on Saturday | October

Another week of wind and showers and intermittent sunshine. Temperatures dipping dramatically in the evening so the woodburner has come back into use. I try not to switch on the central heating until the last possible moment as we have oil here in the countryside not gas, and it can be expensive to run. Definitely…
