Six on Saturday 11th May 2019

I know it's been a quiet week on the blog this week - will have a few more posts for you next week but to round out the week here's a peek into the garden.

Linking up with The Propagator again this month for my Six on Saturday entry. Find out how to join in on his blog here . You'll also be able to see links to all the other participants' posts too. I'm just taking part once a month but many folk take part every week - enjoy!

1. Rosebuds promising joy - The Dark Lady, Gentle Hermione and Alan Titchmarsh all budding up nicely in the front garden

2. The aquilegia that fling themselves all over the garden with joyful abandon really come into their own now - dainty ballerina flowers from an incredibly hardy plant

3. Voluptuous velvets and dainty pastels from the grown from seed pansies.


4. Golden oregano joining the re-emergence of the over-wintered herbs

5. The promise of strawberries despite a small cat-astrophe

6. Daisies dallying at the edge of the grass area - soon the mower will be out but we'll enjoy these for a little while longer.


  1. Your garden looks like its on the edge of bursting into summer. Love the columbine. Such a pretty version.

  2. Thank you for stopping by Lora. It always seems to come into its own during May and June. We've been trying to extend the blooming period over the last few years.

  3. Rose buds are newly exciting for me. I have lots of roses now, mostly 1-2 years old. Lots of buds in similar state to yours...!


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment, due to an upsurge in "odd" comments all comments are moderated. I hope it won't put too many of you off. I think I've also finally fixed the issue that meant we couldn't reply to comments
