It is the Labour Day holiday weekend here, and believe it or not, the weather is good. It is warm, the sun has been shining and it is time yet again to look outside for Six on a Saturday. I really do enjoy doing these posts, and meeting so many lovely and interesting bloggers too.
1 More herbs
I picked up some more herbs today: lemon balm, a curry plant (it really smells like curry!) and a gorgeous lemon thyme. The collection is beginning to grow (in more ways than one…).
2 More of the rhododendron
Looking up at it rather than looking down at it this time, the blooms still continue to brighten up our days.
3 A covered wall
At the top of the stairs at the side of the house, next to the terrace that is begging for a big pot of nasturtiums or something else that looks after itself, is a little wall covered at the moment in what I think is some form of mother of thousands. I just love it, even though it is probably not good for the wall.
4 Around the house
Could someone identify this bush please? There are about three at the front of the house and one at the side. The flower identifying app I have has given about 9 different things, so I hope one of you can tell me what this is. UPDATE! A friend on Facebook identified this as Hebe Townsonii.
5 Flowers that just appear
You never know what is going to pop up, that is the beauty I guess of our semi-wild garden.
6 Our steps
As you can see, the steps up to our house need a good sweep, being covered in petals…and on that note…I leave you until next week. Happy gardening!
Thanks to The Propagator for starting Six on Saturday.
