Well another stormy wet week with a Wednesday so wet and windy, I was glad to be indoors. The ground around me is almost at saturation point now and needs a good few days of drying out, I dread to think of what it will be like if we get another downpour like Wednesday. Work wise managed to get a bit done despite the weather, basically just pruned apple trees for most of the week, so lovely being up a large apple tree, looking for miles on a dry and sunny day.
The six this week mainly come from my little battered garden, my bulbs are the thing that give me so much pleasure in January, they brighten my garden up. As we only rent our place, they are mainly in pots in case we have to move. I would hate to forget one and leave it behind!
Ahh yes sorry I should of added a snowdrop warning earlier, I do grow a few all in pots, this is a new one I brought in the autumn as a bulb and it’s done rather well. It’s called snow fox.
Another group of plants that’s really starting to grab my attention are dwarf Irises particularly the reticulata types, I planted quite a few in the autumn and this one is called Splish Splash
This is one of the first snowdrops that turned my head and made me look at them in a new light and funny enough it was one of the first ones I brought and it’s bulking up quite nicely now, it’s name is Wasp
This was my most expensive reticulata hybrid I brought and the bloody slugs have managed to avoid the sharp gravel and take chunks out of my flower. Bloody things! ‘One was not amused’ anyway, I hope it bulks up for next year, oops forgot the name it’s called Orange Glow.
Yes you guessed it another snowdrop but a double this time and it’s indeed another new one for my collection, added in the autumn after I had seen it growing in a garden. it’s name is Dionysus and never ever ask me to say it! Still a lovely addition!
Nope not finishing this week of a shot of our bins, a good photographer always removes the clutter around the subject they are photographing, lack of time or laziness prevented me moving the subject but the key thing is that the Venus flytrap has put on a flower spike! Very excited to see what happens when it opens, never seen one in flower before!
I hope you enjoyed my 6 on Saturday from My garden. If you did please checkout other people’s 6 on the memes founder website https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com/ I love seeing other people’s plants and what’s happening in their gardens. Why not give it ago yourself next week and give me a shout so I can take a look
Until next week, have fun in the garden
