Work has been busy, so garden jobs are mounting up, but thankfully many things just go on doing their thing, without my help.
So here are this week’s Six on saturday.
I love many of the old cottage garden flowers and have lupins in blue, pink and purple. Always popular with bumblebees.
This lovely small purple Geranium was given to me by a friend. It isn’t in the best place, hidden behind some sage plants, so need to either propagate more plants or move.
All herbs are good pollinator plants and this lavender doesn’t appear to get as leggy as other varieties.
The blue ones seem to have gone over very quickly, but this one is still giving a good display. Single flower varieties will be used by bumblebees.
Always ready to add a dash of colour.
The native bugle is a great little bee plant. This cultivated form has lovely dark crimson leaves and it readily spreads if you let it.
