SixOnSaturday July 4th. Independence Day.

Six things from the garden on a Saturday. Hosted by the Propagator, in the comments section of whose blog more sixes from around the gardening globe may be found. http://www.thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com

1. Red. The first Benarys Giant zinnias are opening in various shades of red. Our own little fireworks!20200703_16105220200703_160858

2. Also at the red party, a Snapdragon that over wintered.20200703_160730_Burst01

3. White cotton mesh curtains protecting the Blueberry crop. No blueberry pie for the 4th of July this year, they’re not ripe yet.20200703_161001

4. Red, White & Blue lychnis coronaria and Hydrangea Blue Billow, a star spangled combo.20200703_161243

5. White and blue all American mopheads.20200703_161128

6. Blue. Because its my favourite colour and also because I’m feeling blue.20200703_160801

In sharing these 6 I’m trying to recall the reasons for being here in this broken and fragile country. Less than 4 years ago there was a leader with strength and pride and hope. And compassion. I’d like that ‘hopey changy thing’ back asap.

  1. Beautiful snapdragon. Mine haven’t done much yet, no flowers so far. I grew them from seed. Usually I buy a pony pack, but I haven’t been out.

  2. Your number six blue gets my vote.
    Thank you again for your comments earlier today over on my space, a chara.
    The one certainty in life is that change is inevitable. You & I know of a change that would have a critical positive effect. Come the day…
