So rain seems to be a common theme with some Six On Saturday participants this week. As a gardener it is hard to get the “right” weather. Back in April and May it was too dry and now it is too wet!!
So first this week, a rather wet bee. Poor bumblebees are not enjoying this weather and numbers are well down from earlier in the year when they were enjoying the sunshine.
2. Next Campanula, this one is about 80-90cm and often gets battered by the wind. So will need to tie up today as it is due to get windy tonight.
3. Fennel is good at capturing those little misty raindrops which we are having quite a bit of:)
4. We have blackcurrants, but we also have two hungry young blackbird who appear to be rather partial to them!
5. Yellow loosestrife
6. And finally Crocosmia lucifer.
Thank you to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.
