Today’s attempts to post have not been very successful. For some unknown reason the first two versions of Six on Saturday, one of which I actually hit the ‘publish’ button, disappeared, I couldn’t even find them in the Trash, which was very annoying. Then I was struck with a migraine so slept most of the day. I took some lovely spring photos today and wanted to share them. With a headache still banging I am going to post a short and sweet six spring photos for my Six on Saturday.
I have 6 of these daffodils in one of my patio pots and annoyingly can’t remember what they are called. I like the good old fashioned daff but these frilly middle ones are very pretty.
After the white crocuses died off, right on time the tulips appeared. They have short stems for some reason, I’m hoping they’ll grow a little taller. As with the daffodils, I can’t remember what variety they are but they have a pretty yellow base to the flower.
I just love this delicate spring flower and was so happy to see them appear. The squirrels had most of the bulbs but at least some survived.
It was a bit murky this morning so the planned photo of this magnificent magnolia with a blue sky behind didn’t happen. This tree is next door and huge!
5. Cherry blossom
The cherry tree on my allotment plot is covered with tiny buds and within a week or so will look fantastic! Watch out for more photos.
6. Tree peony
To my horror this morning I saw one of the 2 buds on my young peony tree has been eaten. It looks like something has burrowed its way in. I posted a photo on Twitter and Instagram asking for advice but as yet I haven’t had a response from anyone. If you can help please let me know. Despite not knowing what pest to blame I have sprayed it with an organic bug mad larvae spray, just in case it helps.
