Six on Saturday #1

on

June arrived with a massive amount of rain but after struggling with a cold for a week it felt so good to be outside, rain be damned.

The joys of inheriting a garden and being fairly new to gardening in this country means I often have no idea what I’m looking at. In some ways I like that though, I think we can get so hung up on other people’s definition of a weed.

I’ve stumbled upon a weekly ritual on The Twitter where people who know a lot more about gardening than me post six photos of garden related stuff. I’m going to have a go so here’s my first six.

Beautiful and tiny cotoneaster flowers from a plant that’s bustin’ a move over the garden wall.

I’ve been well impressed with how well this Dicentra has done, it’s doubled in size since last year. High five Dicentra plant!

That’s a bold move snail, strolling across the patio decking in broad daylight.

Look at the super curly stamen on these Dianthus! So cute!

Confession time, I planted this last year and cannot remember what it is…what are you mystery plant?

The flowers on my only peony were totaled by the rain, this is the only survivor 🙁

Thanks to The Propagator for Six on Saturday, it looks like a fun gig and I hope to participate as often as possible.
