OK so… let me make a quick confession here… it has been some time since I last did a SoS post… simply because I haven’t been blogging these last few months. However, I have taken so many garden photos… and each time I do so, I tell myself I am going to do a SoS post, this weekend. Then I let it slip again. But… this Saturday will be different… I will do a post! Why? Just because…
So, here goes… in chronological order… NUMBER ONE. This is the only cosmos plant to give us these particular colour blooms this year… of the dozen or so plants that reached flowering stage. Special, me thinks
Right… onto NUMBER TWO… the Van Gogh moment – the dwarf sunflowers… past and future. A bit of fun, me thinks?
OK… NUMBER THREE… sweet! The neighbour’s cat joined in… scourge of the veggie beds. I have to constantly cover over the beds… yep, you guessed… the cats prefer our beds to their crappy home comforts. Yes, our mulch is gentler on their delicate ‘lil rear ends… to my disgust!!
Onto NUMBER FOUR… these are still filling the garden with colour! Thanks! I love them… however, my good lady doesn’t… so, I had to hide the plants behind the oil tank. Next year we’ll have the hanging gardens of oil tank splendour, I’m hoping!
Right… back to the cosmos… a bland NUMBER FIVE. I had to find something, didn’t I? Did I say I love purple/ violet/ mauve… or any combination of said shades? No… that’s not pink… promise!
SO… what will we have for NUMBER SIX? Wait and see…
The product of one harvest earlier this week! The last of the sweetcorn… the last potatoes to come out and all the real cucumbers off one vine. The last of the red onions and small garlic and some carrots to throw into the mix, or pot… or whatever? Yep, that’s six… cucumbers, carrots, onions, maize, potatoes and garlic! I’ll add here… I am totally chuffed with the cucumber results!! Totally! I love real cucumbers… not the bland, anemic, tasteless things they sell in most shops! Our cuc harvests have been plentiful… and fortunately the neighbours also appreciate the real thing!
OK… there you have it! As I mentioned… I’ve taken many photos this spring/ summer/ autumn, therefore you may expect a few more Six on Saturday posts in the coming weeks! Also, I have a wee gardening playlist on my YouTube channel… if you’re interested!
