Six on Saturday 20th November

Hello and good morning; or indeed afternoon, evening or night. It’s time I joined again with The Propagator in the weekly display of Six Things on a Saturday. Following on from last week’s foliage fest, I’ve spotted a few more autumn colours worthy of inclusion, so we’ll start with those: 1. Resplendent Ribes The Ribes …

Six on Saturday 13th November

It’s Six on Saturday time again, led as ever by The Propagator.

Exploring Oxalis

The tuberous Corydalis are tucked away under a blanket of leaf mould; no doubt they are fidgeting around beneath their cover, sending roots into the freshly …

Six on Saturday 16th October

Why hello there, welcome to this week’s Six on Saturday! I haven’t really done much at all in the garden this week; the days are letting in darkness like a boat with a hole in the hull: this doesn’t leave much leeway for post-work toil. We’re slowly wending our merry way into the tapestry of …
