🌺This Week An Abundance Of Pink And Purple In My Hampshire Garden For #SixOnSaturday #GardeningTwitter #GardeningMakesMeHappy

We had had another week of sunshine and showers which the garden is adoring. Temperatures have stayed quite low, but there are promises of a fine weekend.

I’m off to help at a plant sale this morning, so I shall catch up with posts from all the other SoS gardeners later.

The Lily Of The Valley are just peaking through the lush green leaves in photo one. While photo two begins the pink and purple theme for the rest of the pictures. This is Clematis Josephine, she’s supposed to be easy to grow, need low maintenance and have a compact habit, which sounds fine to me. I bought her in the post Christmas sales as a gift to myself. The third photo is of the first flowers on the variegated Weigela. Last week Graeme from OneManAndHisGardenTrowel predicted that I wouldn’t have to wait much longer for my Weigela to bloom, and how right he was!

Moving from a pink theme, now we get to the purple flowers. I couldn’t resist sharing this pretty self-seeded Viola that has popped up in the ‘lawn’ (it is mainly Astro which I am slowly removing) I really love Violas and much prefer them to the larger Pansy. The fifth photo goes to some Jacob;s ladder which is attracting the bees. While the last photo shows three Alium which are almost out, but just tantalising with the initial flowers.

Thank you for joining me for this #SixOnSaturday post. I hope that you enjoyed it. Jim is now our host for this gardening meme and you can find his blog here where you will be able to catch up with links from all the other folks who take part.

Happy gardening

  1. Gorgeous, Rosie! I love pink and purple, and your garden is an absolute delight. Like Jaye and Anita, I’d also love to be able to visit your garden in person, but your posts cheer me up and I look forward to them. Here we’re having some much needed rain. Have a beautiful weekend.

  2. I hope that my lily of the valley clump up and flower like yours is doing. First flower on mine this year (bought from Tesco during the lockdown in 2020). Such a lovely scent. Your pink clematis is rather lovely too. My Nelly Moser is plumping up nicely too, another large flowered clematis. Helping at a plant sale sounds dangerous, I bet you come home with a few… 😉

  3. I too love Violas, and it would be well worth saving its seed to increase your stock. The Lily of the Valley looks nicely established, and mine are just a few measly plants, I must be patient, and one day…….

  4. I just wish Lily of the Valley liked my garden, I’ve tried 3 times but it never returns, lucky you! We have the variegated Weigela in common, mine has just started flowering too. Nice colour themed post!

  5. I remember a child telling me that pansies were happy little faces and they are cheerful maybe due to the months they flower as in wintertime here. Lovely to catch up with your garden, Rosie.
