Six on Saturday 26th November 2022

Hello! I haven’t blogged or SoS’ed for ages, due to a combination of truly atrocious weather, an overwhelming schedule and a hefty dose of general malaise. Friday (yesterday) brought a brief moment of respite, so I grabbed it with both hands and got a spot of gardening done (though I still managed to cop forContinue reading “Six on Saturday 26th November 2022”

Six on Saturday – 22nd October 2022

I’m creeping in at the eleventh hour here but I didn’t want to miss Jim’s first week of hosting SOS as he takes over from Jon, Mr Propagator. You can take a look at Jim’s blog for this week and the activities of all the other SOSers here http://garden-ruminations.co.uk/2022/10/22/six-on-saturday-22-10-2022/. Happy weekend to gardeners around theContinue reading “Six on Saturday – 22nd October 2022”

Six on Saturday – 15th October 2022

Hello to SOSers around the world! First things first – sincere thanks to Mr Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday – his last for a bit. You have brought joy to many, Mr P, I hope your rest from hosting is restorative and that we still see you from time to time. Read his postContinue reading “Six on Saturday – 15th October 2022”

Six on Saturday – 3rd September 2022

I am frazzled and so is the garden. There is much to be done, yet no energy or motivation to do it, and the plants are similarly exhausted after so much heat and so little rain – now is not the time to be upping and moving the gardener or the plants. So, we tinkerContinue reading “Six on Saturday – 3rd September 2022”

Six On Saturday – 13th August 2022

Happy Saturday to gardeners and readers around the world and a special thank you to new followers – it’s so nice that people are interested in following what we’re up to in the garden, and I can only apologise for not posting much recently. The hot weather makes me lazy and one must bear theContinue reading “Six On Saturday – 13th August 2022”

Saturday 30th July 2022 – Six on Saturday

Back after a little break… the garden is running away with me a bit, as it tends to do at this time of year, but this weekend I’ve rediscovered my garden mojo and am getting back into the swing of things. Head over to The Propagator’s page to see what everyone else is up toContinue reading “Saturday 30th July 2022 – Six on Saturday”

Six on Saturday – 9th July 2022

Saturday again already and it’s a scorcher. The Under-Gardener and I have had to retreat to the shade, we’ll make use of the light evenings and garden later into the evening instead, so I’m sitting with a cold drink and compiling my SoS. Pop over to The Propagator’s page https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com/2022/07/09/six-on-saturday-09-07-2022/ to have a look atContinue reading “Six on Saturday – 9th July 2022”

Six on Saturday – 2nd July 2022

I know I shouldn’t complain about the rain when some places are desperately in need of it, but it’s very frustrating to have things to do and to have rain stop play. I am listless today and nothing satisfies. A run of largely dull wet days has held the high summer flowers back a little,Continue reading “Six on Saturday – 2nd July 2022”

Six on Saturday – 25th June 2022

Good morning fellow gardeners around the world! Thanks as always to Mr P for hosting. Here are my six, in haste, as I try to organise myself to go to a wedding whilst gritting my teeth through chronic pain. I would rather be in the garden but then that is my default setting! I’m sureContinue reading “Six on Saturday – 25th June 2022”

Six on Saturday – 18th June 2022

It was scorching yesterday, so obviously I chose to collect and bag up a tonne of horse manure with a hangover. Today, blasts of very welcome heavy rain have kept me out of the garden so far, but I’m not complaining. I’m dallying over an extra coffee and browsing the gardens of all the otherContinue reading “Six on Saturday – 18th June 2022”
