Six on Saturday – Colourful Flowers in the Cold

Welcome to my six on Saturday this week. It’s right in the middle of a rather cold winter here. It’s still mild as far as winters go, no snow or anything but we need to go out in our padded snow jackets on cold days.

Still plenty of flowers around my garden fortunately. In fact my garden colour starts with the autumn/winter rains, so each week a new favourite plant starts to flower again.

This is a cute pair of pansies flowering in my new fromt verandah hanging baskets.
More pansy and lobelia loveliness
Pansy/violas in a lovely sky blue
Euryops daisies and a grey leafed marguerite daisy just startng to do their thing
Another newly flowering marguerite and the
border of pot marigolds can be seen in the background
A close-up of the jolly calendulas. The calendula fairies say their orange colours are meant to warm us up on cold days !
Plus one extra for good luck, a photo of a cute little campion that is stating to naturalize in my garden, thanks to the garden fairies! A gift from a beloved neighbour.

That’s all from me. I’m off to write more in my ‘Wild Gardening with the Fairies’ book. Have a lovely week loves. πŸŒΈπŸ’žπŸ§šβ€β™€οΈ

  2. You still have a lot of lovely colour. I love violas – such good plants that flower for ages even in the winter.
