Six on Saturday | Summer 2020

Welcome summer time! Although the week began with beautiful summer weather, it deteriorated mid-week reverting to typical British summertime with cloudy skies and brisk winds, though not so much in the way of rain. This week’s six are all blues and purples that are in flower in my garden during this week. (1) Hebe (Shrubby…

Six on Saturday | the end of spring

I am very late with this post this week. Usually I have my post written on Friday and just waiting to link up to the Prop on Saturday. This week though has been weird, I go out into the garden for 10 minutes of weeding and come back in to find that hours have passed…

Six on Saturday | Newbies

May is hotting up, this past week has been lovely. Here in the south-west we don’t get those mid twenty temperatures in the rest of the country, but 20°C is fine by me. I nearly drove to a nearby beach mid-week, but decided to empty some of the early spring bulb pots instead and get…

Six on Saturday | Mid May

It is a little worrying how fast the months are passing by when I haven’t been anywhere! Already mid May and only a few weeks away from the longest day! I really want these weeks to slow down. Today we’ll have a look in the gravel garden/sunny border: (1) My favourite South African daisy the…

Six on Saturday | Flower Moon

On Thursday the Flower Moon lit up the sky as the last supermoon of 2020 was seen at its most impressive. Par for the course here in the south-west the sky was cloudy when it rose at around 8:45 p.m. but I managed to get a photo through the Velux window later on that night…

Six on Saturday | May Day

This week is all about ferns. I have a lot of ferns in my garden, they self-seed (if that is a word you can use about ferns) along the rockery walls and in the edges of steps. Apart from the Hart’s Tongue fern and the ones I bought last year to plant in containers along…

Six on Saturday | April Flowers

Friday was misty and remained so all day despite the sun trying to burn it off. But the duller day helped me take some photos of flowers that had proved difficult to capture in the brightness. As April wends it way to the end, it has to be said that this must be the most…

Six on Saturday | April Showers

(Please check your Spam folders as I still seem to be disappearing down a rabbit hole on some blogs that I regularly comment on) Well it is my two year anniversary as part of the Prop’s merry band. How different things are today than there were then. Plans and plants put on hold for now,…

Six on Saturday | Easter Weekend

(Can I ask readers to check their spam folders for any comments from me as I seem to be disappearing today! Obviously I have offended WP in some way. Thank you for setting me free! ) One like no other experienced in most of our lifetime. Easter is usually a time when we DO stay…

Six on Saturday | Welcome to BST

I make no apologies for the number of tulip photos you will see this week. The first few photos are of tulips grown in pots in previous years that have come back again this year, proving that although tulips prefer a cold spell over winter and a hot baking summer, sometimes you are lucky enough…
