Six on Saturday – W36/2020 – Splashes of Colour!

This week has been pretty hectic – but not in the garden! The garden has been managing by itself during the week, but there are lots of pops of colour appearing as spring begins. This colour is welcome as it just goes to brighten up a sparse looking garden with no dense greenery.

This weeks Six is going to be very brief and consisting of mainly photos of some flowers that are brightening up the garden this week. Next week I will hopefully do a (belated) vegetable garden post, but for now lets get started with this week’s Six.

1. Clivia miniata
2. Violas
3. Batrlettina sordida (Syn. Eupatorium megalophyllum), Mexican mist flower
4. Walking iris
5. Abutilon
6. Potted colour – Petunia

That is my brief contribution to this week’s Six! As usual I will be doing my armchair viewing of other gardens a little later on during the week. Today (Saturday) is wedding day for Mr S and I. It will be a small affair, unfortunately without some important family members due to COVID restrictions and distance, but thanks to technology they will all be able to ‘join’ the proceedings live. (The use of technology has been a learning curve for me!)

The host of these Six on Saturday memes is The Propagator, so pop over to his blog, have a look in the comments section for the garden links, and if you’re inspired to join in, then check out the participant guide here.

Wishing you all a very Happy Gardening Week!!


  1. Congratulations!

    My goodness, I’m surprised that you found time to post anything at all!

    The flowers in your post are beautiful, but definitely overshadowed by your other news!

    Wishing you both every happiness for the future. ❤️

  2. Oh my goodness, Happy Wedding Day! Can’t imagine you had time to post or to garden at all. May your marriage be filled with love, joy, and plenty of laughter!

    • Thank you so much for the wishes! It is a second marriage for both of us. I must admit it has been quite busy over the past few months, especially with all the changes due to covid…. Now we can get back to the gardening!!

    • The iris is lovely, but unfortunately the flower does not last long. Luckily they seem to come out in succession. I have to confess I do love the violas, and they seem to grow well in my garden until the summer heat wilts them.
