In my little corner of the country, the garden has exhausted itself, and it’s looking sad and very dull, much like the weather. So this week I’m taking a look back to summer. Not only was it a Covid-19 summer, but it was also a dripping wet summer, at least, where I am. So this week my six is about rain. And before you switch off, this was welcome rain; it was light rain that fell gently one night in June and refreshed the garden after an unusually dry, sunny and warm spring.
This will be my last Six on Saturday until next year, though I’m sure I’ll be posting about other things, just not six subjects – for a little while. I’ll be baking, helping to organise a Zoom concert, creating invitations, putting finishing touches to the rooms I’m getting ready for Christmas visitors, decorating the trees and hopefully making the house sparkle. I hope to find time to put together another photo book of my favourite garden photos, and I’ll say more about that in a separate post – but for now, here are my six rainy day plants.
Papaver orientale ‘allegro’
The Picnic Table
Oops…I think I’ve gone over six. Does anyone mind? 😁
That’s all from me for the moment friends, I’ll pop in to see your blogs, and post about various topics from time to time and until then, stay safe, healthy & happy!
ABOUT SIX ON SATURDAY
To join with other garden enthusiasts from around the world, and see how they garden, just take six photographs and post them to Twitter and/or your blog each Saturday. You can get all the details from The Propagator who kindly set it all up.
