1. The front door clematis now has extra string to climb… it is really growing rapidly and has big, beautiful blooms.
3. Sweet William- this a self seeded plant that popped up in a wild space at the bottom of the garden, and has been promoted to a prominent ornamental bed.
4. Kalanchoe (I think) purchased a couple of years ago from a charity shop. This lives in a sheltered spot in the front porch, open to the elements, and has recently produced these very cheery yellow flowers.
5. Pinks, Sweet Williams and a few little plants on the coffee table… I’ve brought a few little beauties together to be admired.
6. A basket of garden flowers – I made the willow basket last year, and the the orange lillies, purple geraniums and roses and Cinqefoil from the garden make a big bright cheerful bunch. Homegrown flowers are the best.
That’s a little slice of my garden this week. For more garden highlights visit the Propagator’s blog, where people share ‘six on saturday’each week.

Your clematis is an amazing colour, what is its name? Love the rose, I really like the single flowers. Hope you got some rain this week. 🙂
Oh I wish I knew what the clematis is, it was planted long ago and the label is lost. I think the rose is ballerina. The bees really like it, and so do I. Thanks for your rain wish – it seemed to work. Could you not have sent it before the weekend? 😉

Very, very nice! It feels so peaceful! You have a wonderful basket for your floral displays too!
Thank you! The basket was great fun to make, with directions from a fantastic tutor at the local community college.
Sigh… oh, Sweet William. So pretty, so aromatic. But, so large. I ended up taking all of mine out last week. I found they harbored earwigs in all that lovely green growth!
These are quite small, about 8 inches tall. I’ll keep a close eye out for earwigs when I bring them inside! 👀
So pretty! I love the Clematis at your entrance, plus the rose. Both stunning! your garden must look amazing now. The basket you made is really lovely and of course is ideal for displaying your flowers. Home grown flowers are definitely the best!!
Cinquefoil looks like a hypericum to me. I had to look it up because I do not know what it is. Is ‘cinquefoil’ a common name for hypericum too?
I think that what you called hypericum is what I know as St John’s wort. And I think the shrub in my garden with the yellow flowers is Shrubby cinquefoil – proper name Dasiphora fruticosa. However, my plant ID skills are limited so I’m open to other suggestions 🙂

Yes, hypericum is Saint John’s wort. That is what yours looks like, although I do not recognize the species. The foliage is right for the genus, as well as the profusely staminate centers of the flowers. That cinquefoil does not seem to be in the Rosaceae Family.
