Six on Saturday 30/07/22

We’ve had family visiting from Belfast for the last week so, apart from some watering, I’ve not done any gardening – far too busy having fun. When I went out into the garden yesterday evening to look for six things to show this week Joseph and Orla decided that they would choose for me.

So I present Joseph and Orla’s Six on Saturday.

  • Orla’s first choice. The bulbs were ordered as Lilium ‘Apricot Star’ but they clearly aren’t. They are very pretty nonetheless.
  • Joseph liked the Dahlias and narrowed his choice down to these two
Dahlia ‘Moonfire’
D. ‘Honka Fragile’
Eryngium zabelii ‘Big Blue’ caught Joseph’s eye
  • Orla’s looking forward to some bananas! (I did explain).
Ensete maurelii
  • Final choice for Orla.
Geranium ‘Antik Series’

Maybe I’ll have to get other people to choose my Six for me again, it’s certainly quicker. Have a great weekend, we’re hoping to get to the Creating Spaces sculpture exhibition at The Garden, Miserden in Gloucestershire later today.

There’s lots more to see at

  1. Orla seems to be an exuberant woman who likes warm and bright colours while Joseph is someone who perhaps prefers simple, classic things that catch the eye.…( Maybe I’m wrong , my apologies) Anyway the choice of this Six is original.

  2. Great choices! That lily is beautiful, I may have to try to grow some again next year, I gave up because I was fed up of the flower buds getting eaten by slugs, but I have found that if I keep pots on a table they are less likely to get damaged.
