Six on Saturday – 28th August 2021

There is a real feel of autumn in the air. So first this week in the garden is a lovely spider web – there were lots this morning.

In the wildflower meadow, the late summer – autumn flowers are out – first devil’s bit scabious. I love the colour of this flower.

Also in the meadow is knapweed. A great pollinator plant.

Autumn of course brings fruit. We don’t have much this year (cold, May with frost) and the brambly apples have got scab – for the first time ever.

Autumn also bring seeds heads – poppies being one of my favourite.

Thankfully there is still some colour – here from snapdragons.

Thank you to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.

    Just found a large patch of devil’s bit scabious on ‘our’ hill. Such a lovely colour but so difficult to photograph in the wind! Knapweed is pretty too. I agree with Jane. Lovely photos.

      Thank you. The knapweed and scabious seeds I collect locally and scattered them in the wildflower meadow and they came all by themselves
