Six on Saturday headed up by Jon The Prop is a great way of noting down on my blog the progress or otherwise of the garden over the previous week. We often talk about the weather too, and this week we have lunched in the garden, and I have had to move potted plants into the shade. Fleece has been used as much for frost protection as for shading of new lettuce seedling planted out from the scorching sun and drying winds. The rain tub is empty and and the hose is out of the shed, rescue watering has now begun.
1. Over five weeks, I have now shown all the newly planted species tulips. Last week I showed my favourite T. Whittalii Major, and in bloom this week is T. Clusiana Chrysantha, Mr S's favourite. It is looking quite at its best this week in our front garden. Later in the day when they open out you can seen into their rich yellow centres.
