I can’t believe that it is September already! Where did the summer go?? It seemed to fly by didn’t it?! The weather has been quite chilly this week with temperatures as low as 8 degrees at night but the sunny weather seems to be returning next week. I am back to school on Monday after a fabulous summer and, to be honest, I’m looking forward to getting back into some kind of routine.
Here is my Six on Saturday. Six things in the Old House garden in a Saturday. If you would like to join in, do pop over to The Propagator.
This is a victim of the renovations that we are doing at the moment. I’m really hoping that it will live but I doubt it. I’ve now planted it in lots of lovely soil full of manure and will leave it. I’m hoping that it will grow some roots before the Winter and regrow in the Spring. We shall see. What do you think?
2. Lovely Japanese Anemone
I love these plants. They are so pretty! I did have so many more but I had to move loads when we knew we were having building work. I’m hoping more will flower next year.
I love the colour of these Cosmos! They are a very soft yellow and have kept flowering for the whole of July and August. I grew them from seed but this is the only plant to have survived the slug onslaught in May! I will definately grow this one again though.
I planted these Gladioli bulbs a little late and this is the only flower I have so far. The orange ones from a few years ago have already flowered and gone over so I’m hoping to have a few more flowers this month.
I think this is a Jackmanii. What do you think?
6. Nasturtium madness
I have been so busy this week getting ready for the return to school and with my daughter going to university in a few weeks, that I haven’t noticed the Nasturtiums creeping their way around the garden furniture! This actually made me laugh today! This is supposed to be a wildflower border but I obviously threw too many nasturtium seeds in there too! I’m going to leave them until they die back but I must remember to scoop up their seeds for next year!
Well, there is my Six! I hope you enjoy your weekend and happy gardening!
