Six on Saturday – 30th May

Another warm, dry week. Really this is not usual West of Ireland weather but it was similar last year. Today there has been lots of watering and some planting in the vegetable plot.

However, I will concentrate on flowers this week. First the wildflower meadow is just getting going. Ox-eyed daisy are the mainstay, with red clover, and meadow buttercup. We usually get a few orchids but nothing showing yet.

Next rambling rose. This is one of three heritage ones that ramble through the hedge.

Rambling rose

Blue iris. I get the feeling this plant is not enjoying the dry weather..

I bought these last autumn and had forgotten I had planted them. I think it is Allium Summer Bells

Next Sweet Rocket.

And finally Delphinium

Thank you to The Propagator for hosting Six On Saturday

    I have to water too as I have young plants and seedlings to take care for. I do not mind. I am loving this weather. Your allium is so delicate and pretty. I wish I had planted some in my mini-mini-meadow!

      It has been hot for us today up to 26 degrees Celsius. But it is to start cooling down tomorrow with possible rain by Thursday.
