The second week in June and the evenings are still quite chilly. But the flowers are blooming and the bees are humming. Let’s get straight on with Six On Saturday.
Photo one is of these gorgeous deep mauve (Or blue, or purple ) Anemones. My mixed pack are now really flowering well. I just need to keep the pigeons from dead-heading them, they especially like the red ones.
Photo two is of the frothy Hawthorn flowers from a tiny bush in the front garden. I tried to take a close-up of the tiny flowers. They look all spotty this close up.
Next up is what I think is a Viburnum, although I’m not too sure. I’ve looked it up against the flowers and it is my best guess. I am guilty of chopping this back in other years thinking it was a self-seeder, which it might still be as it’s so close to a Cyprus that they vie for space.
Fourth photo is of the delicate pink tea rose which I split last year and overwintered in a pot with violas. Originally the rose was given as a house-warming pot plant three years ago and I have kept it alive. Both now are beginning to put on a good display with the violas coming back into flower after a feed..
Fifth photo is of another plant that I am guessing the variety of – I think this is a Chinese Privet. It hosts one of the Honeysuckles and both are now in flower.
Lastly the delicate blue flowers of the Borage, one of my wild plants that I’ve grown from seed for the pollinators. The flowers look almost bird-like with the centre seeming as if it is the head and beak of the flying bird.
