Six on Saturday – To Infinity and Beyond

Two SoSing weeks on the trot, I must be on track for a gold star on the The Prop’s chart of Shame and Glory. The cold and crisp has been replaced by the damp and dreary and, although I have had countless flights of imagination, I haven’t done any actual gardening. Still, these things can’tContinue reading “Six on Saturday – To Infinity and Beyond”

Six on Saturday – You can’t keep a good fern down

February has arrived; which is officially the last month of winter. That is if like me you prefer to adhere to the meteorological interpretation of events, at this end of the year anyway. And it’s a shortie so should fly by. Then, baby, the only way is up! My Six on Saturday this week hasContinue reading “Six on Saturday – You can’t keep a good fern down”

Six on Saturday

Six on Saturday, here we go again. Admittedly it has been a few weeks since I dabbled, but I’m sure I will pick it up again; the subtle nuances, the intricacies. Just like riding a bicycle.

So let us splodge on.  Shall we talk about the rain? In order to accurately convey my feelings onContinue reading “Soggy Six on Saturday”

Six on Saturday – Chocolates

Even though it was singularly uninviting, it being damp and windy and the weekend, I had to go out into the garden this morning.  Not just because of the pressing urgency of The Propagator‘s Six on Saturday, but because if I didn’t do certain jobs a visit from the local RSPCP officer was inevitable.  So IContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Chocolates”

Osteospermum ‘Double Berry White’

A day of dodging showers at The Farm.  No matter, most of the time I was in easy reach of a waterproof or a shelter.  There were plenty of indoor jobs to be done.  In the greenhouse the tomato vines, which had been allowed to express themselves freely over the last few weeks, were trimmedContinue reading “Osteospermum ‘Double Berry White’”
