Confession: It’s been almost 9 months since my last Six on Saturday. Here I am again, dipping my toe into the ocean of gardening posts. I’ve continued to blog and have enjoyed reading and commenting on weekly posts by gardeners around the world led by The Propagator, but I’ve lacked the steam to fully re-engage — until now.
ONE – Anemone Coronaria –These bright and cheerful lovelies I started a few months ago are surviving our chilly, wet spring.
TWO – Lupine Hill, which we smothered last summer and partially replanted last fall, is now thriving.
THREE – Fava or Broad Beans — No one told me how interesting their blooms are, and they have definitely surprised me this spring, my first time growing them.
FOUR – Nibbled-off Alchemilla Blooms — These were grazed by deer along the front of our home. Good thing there are plenty more in the fenced land.
FIVE – The Year-Old Rose Garden — Our exceedingly cold spring has held off blooms, but the plants are positively loaded with buds. First two to open were a Munstead Wood and this Golden Celebration.
SIX – Blue Poppy — The time for Meconopsis betonicifolia is NOW at Coppertop!
