Six on Saturday – 10th July 2021

July is proving to be a pretty grey month so far here in the west of Ireland, with little sun. Thankfully some dry days despite the clouds. Still plenty colour in the garden to bring us some sunshine.

  1. Cosmos

2. Yellow Loosestrife

3. Day lily

4. In the flower meadow, orchids are really abundant this year. When we started the meadow we had about three orchids. This year we counted 18 a week ago, and a couple of more have appeared since. They are all common ones but still lovely to have.

5. Also in the meadow more ragged robin – it looks lovely against the white ox-eye daisies.

6. The bees are certainly enjoying all the wild flowers.

Thank you to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.

    A collection to make you feel happy. Pleased to see the yellow rattle as I shall be sowing some seed next month (as you say) to help establish my wildflower plug plants in the tiny garden areas.
    Love the orchid. Just wonder how they appear?

      They were probably in the field from the start, just over the years our management is allowing them to increase. Though I do think this year is a good orchid year.
