I am on my hols, so will be brief. Here in Scotland the weather has been “changeable” at best. Yesterday was filthy, windy and very wet, but there have been glimpses of sunshine, including the day we spent at Stirling Castle. Among the kilts and suits of armour there is quite a nice herbaceous border from which 5 of my 6 come this week.

Six on Saturday, you know the drill.

Here are my Six for this week.

1. Ligularia. Jealous of this, I have tried to grow it but it is just a slug banquet in my garden.

2. Sweet William?

3. Zinnia, I think.

4. California poppy, I think…

5. A rose.

6. Extreme gardening. In Edinburgh this time, in Prince’s Street park there is a large (working) floral clock. When we passed the gardener was tending it, precariously balanced almost horizontally on a ladder. I think he was dead heading.

That’s my brief Six this week. Join in! Just publish your post and pop a link to it in the comments below.

I’ll be back in my own garden next weekend for another #SixOnSaturday.
