Six on Saturday – The Management


There have been complaints from The Management.   We are talking Upper Management.   Even higher than our master CEO Prop.  Yes we are talking about Peggy, my mum.   It has been noted, and duly logged, that I missed the last Six on Saturday and my excuses for this week fell on deaf ears.   As I have rarely done as I was told since a I was a very young girl this would usually be shrugged off with a “whatever”.  Then, she took a tumble.  As she hasn’t been practicing her judo rolls she is feeling a little worse for wear.  Anything to get me to do as I’m told.

Can I be honest with you without fear of rebuke?  I thought not.  Rebuke away.  These photos were not taken in my garden and definitely not on a Saturday.  And this is going to be brief.  Concise is a better word.  Let us go.

First Epimedium ‘Frohnleiten’, lovely jubbly.

Second Hacquetia epipactis, splendiferous.

Third forget-me-not, amazeballs.

Drimys lanceolata

Fourth Tasmannia lanceolata (Drimys lanceolata), fandabidosi.


Fifth Synthyris missurica, perfectarooney.

Lastly little mousie magnolia bud casing, stupendimania.

Adios friends!



Forget-me-nots can be very irritating, a proper nuisance.  Popping up all over the place and prompting moral dilemmas as to which to keep and which to compost.  Their prolificacy ensures there is no chance whatsoever of forgetting them.

And then they flower.   All is forgiven.  All is forgotten.
