Six on Saturday. 29.6.2024

First of all I have to apologise for not getting back to you all last weekend, I did read all your lovely posts, but was so busy with my visitor, the time just flew by and then I was exhausted!

On to this weeks six, after a week of sunshine and strong winds, a bit cooler than we had been hoping.

Rose Liverpool Hope surrounded by Campanula poscharskyana. I think the colours go so well together.

Philadelphus Belle Etoille, flowering profusely at the moment and filling the garden with its perfume.

A Meadow Brown butterfly just where it should be, in my meadow! When first looking at the meadow flowers, at first glance it doesn’t seem as there is anything visiting, but after a few moments, movement from lots of little bees and other insects attract the eye Just after this photo was taken a Holly Blue butterfly flew past, didn’t land, it was too quick for me!

Trachelospermum jasminoides is now flowering on one of the uprights of the pergola, another plant that stops me in my tracks with its perfume.

Rosa Mulligani, climbing up the dead oak tree. Not looking very good this year, it doesn’t seem to have any leaves on it. It was planted well over 20 yrs ago but is now in a spot which gets flooded every winter. I think I’ll have to take some cuttings and grow them up another oak tree.

Clematis Prince Charles has decided to scramble over one of my shrubs

I can’t really complain, it is a beautiful colour and I like the flower shape too.

Hopefully we will all get some gardening done this weekend. If the weather breaks then pop over to Jim at Garden Ruminations to see gardens from around the world.

    Rose Liverpool Hope and the Campanula really are a perfect match. Lovely.

  2. Helen Jones says:

    I never thought I’d say that Prince Charles is beautiful!

  3. I love your rose and campanula combination too. I’ve just brought a Prince Charles after admiring them for years. Of course it now looks sickly!

    Glad to hear all is well Pauline and your absence due only to a visitor! Sounds like your meadow is doing a great job. I wonder why R Mulligani doesn’t have any leaves but so many flowers.

    • Pauline says:

      I’m so pleased with the meadow and all the insects it is attracting Denise, I can also see hedgehog sized tracks through it too! Maybe the rose has so many flowers trying to reproduce before it dies?!

  5. Chloris says:

    You are enjoying plenty of fragrance in your garden. Prince Charles is lovely, I’ll have to look out for him.

    • Pauline says:

      I love all the perfume that I have at the moment Liz, it certainly brings another aspect to the garden. I can recommend C. Prince Charles, he gets better each year.

  6. Gill Heavens says:

    Prince Charles is a lovely colour, I do love that pale blue. I’ve not come across Liverpool Hope before, I wonder what that name is all about? Very pretty though!

  7. Catherine says:

    The rose and campanula were made for each other, Pauline. What a beautiful colour combination. One of my sisters has the same clematis in her garden, and I’ve often admired it. I like how it’s scrambling over your shrub – it looks like a very natural thing for it to do.

    • Pauline says:

      Thanks Catherine I too think the rose and campanula go really well together.I agree that Prince Charles looks very happy sprawling across my shrub!
