My gardening interest levels remain in the doldroms, and I spent yesterday lunchtime putting up our outside lights (I finally caved this year in the case of 2020’s unending gloom). That combination dealt a fatal blow to my Six on Saturday photo taking so I’ve reached for the photo album to find pictures from the last few years, all around this time of year.
1 – Snowman! This time last year we had a decent fall of snow. It didn’t stick around for long, but certainly long enough for this chap to be constructed.
2 – Seed drawers. It’s been a long while since I got my drawers out, as it very much were. Made over the holidays a few years ago, these are still brightening a corner of the shed.
3 – Compost heap construction. This is from last year, I think, but could easily be from today, the heap is in a similar condition. Last year’s batch is depleted after being used for tubs of tulips and other container filling. I have quite the pile of cardboard stashed for layers of browns once I get constructing again. It’s tricky to find sufficient green material this year, I might have to pop to the brewery and grab a few bags of spent hops, or to the stables for some manure. If they’ll let me in this pandemic madness.
4 – Allium seedheads. This was from the gardens of the American Museum near Bath where Mrs P and I spent a weekend around this time last year.
5 – Tidy pots. A rare sight, neatly organised pots in their drawer. I no longer bother washing them out, just knock the old compost out and store till next time. I have lots and lots of pots…
6 – Pansy. Another one that could easily have been from this year but isn’t.
A rather half hearted Six from me, what are yours? If you’d like to join in, just publish your post and pop a link to it in the comments below. If you also mention my blog in yours that would be spiffing. For more details you can read the brief participant guide.
Have a fab weekend, don’t forget to check back as more links are added during the day.
Stay safe, I’ll be back next weekend with another #SixOnSaturday.
