The weather is set fair for the weekend, cool but bright and sunny, a perfect late winter’s day. I’ll mainly be repairing my shed roof, which is still naked to the elements, the protective, mostly waterproof felt having blown off in last Friday’s gales. I’ve got the stuff, the weather is right, and I’m not running today, so there are no excuses. We’ll see how I got on next week! While I’m balanced on a ladder trying not fall through the roof of the shed, you can all do #SixOnSaturday. Six things, in the garden, on a Saturday. Could be anything, you decide. Join in!
Here are my Six for this week.
1 – Leak. This pipe carries water round the garden for various taps I have which in turn feed the drip irrigation system. This joint has been leaking for a year, I dread to think how much water has escaped. I need to re-seat that right-hand bit of pipe and/or replace the t-joint.
2 – Tulip! First sign of emerging tulip foliage, but I’ll take it. This one is in a tub with Negretta and Angel’s Wish, purple and cream respectively.
3 – Crocosmia, still not moved. Yep, the fresh growth is coming through but I haven’t moved them as planned. They get a bit swamped in this position. Something else to add to the list.
4 – Narcissi, probably Tete-a-tete, could be Martinette, or something else entirely. Unusually I have not labelled this clump. The variety is less important than the fact they will soon be brightening up this corner of the garden.
5 – Pot watch. Sticking with the bulb theme, all of the pots I cobbled together for this table top display are sprouting new growth. As noted previously, I will add crocuses and perhaps some snowdrops for next year. This table is right outside the kitchen window, so hopefully it will be a jolly view.
6 – Crocus. Nope, not moving off the bulbs. These are all out in the borders. I should plant more, it’s about all that’s flowering in February, some daffs excepted.
Those are my Six, 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 great weekend, get some gardening done.
I’ll be back next weekend with another #SixOnSaturday.
