Morning and welcome to this weeks Six on Saturday Lite.
This weeks is going to be a quick blog as I am feeling a little bit under weather. Don’t worry luckily it’s got nothing to do with the dreaded Coronavirus I am just suffering a bit from exhaustion due to a busy period at work and the heat in Edinburgh got to me a little bit on Wednesday partly because I had been working in a unit with air conditioning and walked into the furnace like heat and I didn’t expect it to be that hot.
Here is my six photos.
1. Dahlia Clearview Daniel
Featured last week as you can see this has opened up fully and looks spectacular.
2. Rudbekia and Erygium mix
Always a winner this combination. As you can see the Erygium platum is just on the turn from it’s purple flowers to it’s fabulous golden brown colour when it starts to die back. Just in the background you can see Geranium Roseanne which I have moved so it can flower freely and grow up the Rudbekia.
3. Dahlia Hadrians Sunset
The only other Dahlia flower I have in my garden at the moment. It is a fantastic flower and as you can see a wee beastie likes it so much it has had a nibble.
4. Erygium Big Blue
As mentioned previously this plant is moving from the vibrant blue flowering stage to the beautiful seed heads. The blue on the “collar” has going more silvery as well.
5. Hermoncallis Pink Damsk
This flower as you can see is a lovely colour and flowers later than other varieties I have.
6. Echeviera Canculata
One of the unusual Echerverias. This one has large leaves with bubbly growths on the leaves.
That’s it for this week.
Until next week goodbye!
