What a lovely week it has been. Beautiful sunshine and warm temperature, summer has been extended. How wonderful. Sitting outside reading a book and catching up with social media is just pure joy. Lots of things to do in the garden and housework obviously but damn if I’m doing anything but laze around enjoying this lovely day.
#SixonSaturday My Six on Saturday Apart from flowers that has been around since.July there really nothing more fresh to share. Bees are still busy and loads of Red Admiral and whites, big and small. Just watching these fliers are hypnotic. Also they keep me busy taking photos of them, very trying but worth it. Watching these beauties made me rethink of planting for next spring especially this time of year as i don’t have much for them. Anyway some more thinking to do, adding and deleting some of the plants listed.
Here’s my #SixonSaturday
Ivy this is an invasive plant and it grows in all sides of my garden; covering trees, fences, ground, my wall and hedges. You name it, its there. Hard to get rid off. Anyway, it’s good for the bees and butterflies for Autumn feast. They’re staying. Only pulled out if seen in my flower beds.
Blackberry another crawler, again, I am surrounded with this wildfruit. Like the Ivy hard to contain and had been scratched and pricked dealing with this thing. Again good for.the bees, butterflies and birds. I don’t mind it growing unless it plant itself in my pots and flower beds or wrapped around itself on my trees (pruning)
Agastache I love the golden colour. It doesn’t go with my blue, lilac, pink hues but I thought it was striking. Doing well for its first year. Thought bees will ignore it but actually, they don’t mind.
This is a wildflower I should know it’s name recommended by a friend. I get blue butterflies in the garden but they’re not staying put so I planted these. Still haven’t seen a blue on it but then again, the whites love it.
Roses still doing well
