6 Beauties From My Hampshire Garden For This Week’s #SixOnSaturday Gardening Meme #GardeningTwitter #InMyGardenToday #Flowers 🌺🌹🌷

A sprinkle of rain on multiple days and a good spot of sun mean lots of flowers in my garden and out in the countryside everything looks lush and green.🌳🌳

Six flowers from my garden

Six On Saturday – Let’s Go!

First photo goes to one of the Anemone from the mixed bulb pack which I started off on Feb 12th by soaking the corms. They didn’t all grow, probably only half the pack, so I’m not sure if soaking was a good thing, but I do like to experiment!

Second photo goes to the purple Rhododendron, I have two in this colour.

Third photo is of my red Rhododendron. This one isn’t as happy as the purple ones and may be suffering from competition for water from nearby shrubs.

Fourth photo is of the pretty Oxalis (Regnelli – I think) This pops up in the beds and pushes through the foliage.

Fifth photo is of one of the roses that we inherited with the garden and lovely orange yellow with pinky red brush strokes.

Final photo is another rose, this one has been beaten-up by a broken fence panel in the past and has to fend for itself when the beech hedge unfurls, but it is a lovely colour.

Thank you for joining me for this #SixOnSaturday post. I hope that you enjoyed it. If you would like to know more about this hashtag, read founder Mr Propagator’s post here also find him on Twitter here.

  1. What stunning colours. Our rhododendrons have to grow in pots as our soil is very chalky. This year one of them that’s usually pale pink has flowered a lovely deep red. We’re rather mystified about why that’s happened – swapped by elves in the night or a natural mutation? Any suggestions welcome! Harriet

  3. Gorgeous flowers, Rosie. You bring a touch of colour to my Saturdays, and you’ve reminded me of the rose bush I used to have. They wee a soft/rusty pink and smelled beautiful.

  4. Stunning colors and gorgeous flowers – you must take great joy in them! Our iris did not bloom – we planted too late in the season, but we are letting the sprouts grow and expect some great things next year. It’s been incredibly hot here – in the upper 90s, so unusual for May, and we have to water a lot because of the heat. About the only things that like the heat are the tomatoes and peppers!
