I’m writing this post listening to thunder and watching the rain…so it is just as well I managed to take a couple of pictures yesterday for this post. Anyway, here are my Six on Saturday and thanks once again to The Propagator for allowing us to share what is going on in our gardens.
So first up…the weather…with warm temperatures for part of the week, and then a grey rainy day today, we’ve pretty much had it all. The camellias are still doing fine, looking good in rain or shine. There are still quite a few buds too.
Due to the rain, instead of being out there tidying up, I have just ordered a bunch of seeds. The choices made, and how they do, will of course feature here.
Third up, the anemones are blossoming, with a few purple blooms showing their heads. They are quite stunning when you look closely.
At number four, aren’t these looking gorgeous? I don’t think words are needed. Oh and please ignore the state of the lemon balm at the back!
Otherwise, the tarragon is showing new signs of life, the bee balm is growing nicely and I still have a decent amount of parsley to keep me going. The three basil plants I brought in for winter are not looking spectacular, but are still alive and once the warmer weather comes they should perk up back outside again I hope.
Finally, spotted this on Thursday…..you may, or may not, agree…
So that’s it from me. A bit truncated this week due to weather and attending Beervana, the beer festival earlier this afternoon. However, I am of course, looking forward to seeing everyone’s beautiful gardens in other parts of the world.
