Ahhh here we are again, it’s Saturday and the weekend once more. This week has flown by, mainly for the wrong reasons and I will be honest, I am slightly glad to see the back of it! After last weeks heat wave, we got back to the normal April weather and temperatures, warm, then hot and then freezing cold all normally takes place within the same hour! Then there’s the showers, some are light, other times monsoon with lightening highlighting the conditions. Let’s hope as we get into May, it will settle a bit more
My six things this week come from my own garden, not a lot has happened with it structure wise but the plants are now doing their thing and turning the bare patches into a green oasis.
Yes sorry there will be more tulips in this weeks 6, I should of added a warning but I am hoping this unusual Tulip, tulip acuminata, a delightful specie tulip that’s been around certainly since the 17th century, will mean you will let me off!
This weeks number two is one of my plants near my front door, the lovely Pieris japonica carnival is just looking stunning at the moment,
And back to the tulips, the classic Angelique needs not introduction, one of my favourites and looks great mixed in with my next one
Tulip Atlantis which fades to a much lighter colour as it ages
Let’s change to foliage this time and Dicentras are one of the best for this light ferny foliage that looks wonderful in the borders, king of the hearts is this plants form
Lastly an oddity I kinda love, such an unusual leaf, it’s a cross between Berginia and Mukdenia that gives great autumn colour as well as this lovely leaf shape.
Well that’s my six done from my garden this week, so many plants now are starting to wake up and start delighting us with their beauty. I hope you have a great weekend and check out the other six on Saturday over at the hosts site https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com
Until next week, have fun in the garden or indeed just admiring plants
