Six on Saturday – On Sunday

28 Jul

A day late as I was busy all day yesterday hearing about the climate emergency and how we can each be doing our bit.
July is turning out to be a month of abundance, many more blooms that I remember from last year. Perhaps I have been more vigilant about feeding and certainly the sun and rain mix has been beneficial.

1.  Day Lilies

2.  Alium with bees

3.   Trailing Begonia called Million Kisses. We had these in all the chimneys and pots the year of our Golden Wedding.

4   Clematis and Dahlia in Suffragette colours – in the back garden, not in my Suffragette garden in the front.

5.   Agapanthus


6.  Poppy Seeds to save.  There have been dozens of Poppies, all from seed saved last year and we have labelled the ones we like the best for harvesting this year.

    Tagging your poppy seed heads is such a good idea, especially if you have more than one colour. Love that day lily, & your photo of the bees on the allium is lovely. Is the begonia planted in some type of spouting or is that a type of chimney pot cover or . . . .? Love the look of its shape & the begonia flowers go well w/its colour.

      Yes, the begonia is planted in an old chimney cowl, the thing that sits on top of a chimney to stop the rain going down. I’m glad you like the effect as much as I do. 🙂
