Six on Saturday 21/11/2020

Opening with a weather comment again! It’s getting colder slowly but in this little corner of England there still hasn’t been a frost to kill off any remaining non- hardy flowering plants.

My Six on Saturday is showcasing plants that are not ready to leave the party yet.

1. Fuchsia

This pretty purple/blue and white fuchsia is still full of buds, although the leaves are beginning to drop off the stems.

2. Cosmos

Making up for being slow – it took until September to start to flower. There are still lots of buds, it’ll be interesting to see how long it lasts.

3. New Guinea Begonia

I could do with this pot to plant the last of my spring bulbs but at the moment while this New Guinea begonia keeps going I feel loathe to ditch it. I find it difficult to be a heartless gardener.

4. Roses

This was a little patio rose I had in a pot for a few years, no idea what it is called. This summer I added to the side border by the entrance drive. It clearly loves its new home and is flourishing still.

5. Alstroemeria ‘Indian Summer

What excellent value Alstroemeria is in the garden. I am still pulling flower stems for indoors, but they are now becoming few and far between.

6. Cala Lily

I am just blown away with this plant. My neighbor and I have been adding plants during the year on the side bed. He was given this Lily a few months ago and he planted it up against the wall in a sheltered position. It is so white it glows in the dark, really! It’s like having a little light bulb in that corner.

Short it sweet this week. As The Propagator said in his Six on Saturday this week “The days of plenty are long gone, a certain amount of creativity is required” and challenged our creativity to find Six for this weekly meme. Please take a look at this blog to see what he is showing along with the other contributors.
