So to November...how is it looking in your garden? It has been rather soggy here in Glasgow so much so that there have been puddles on the grass which is never a good sign. Here are my picks from the garden this week, for #SixonSaturday as November squelches on!
It is already feeling quite Autumnal in the garden with windy days and falling leaves but a quick look around the garden reveals that there still are welcome pops of colour everywhere! Here’s my pick from the garden this week, as slide into September, for #SixonSaturday!
This weekend we have welcome sunshine, giving drowned flowers the chance to hopefully, pull their heads up high again! Here’s my purple pick from the garden this week, in the sunshine, for #SixonSaturday!
Compared to the fabulousness of June, July has come in wet and soggy with almost continual rain in Glasgow this week which means everything is well watered and looking very green and lush. Here's my pick from the garden this week, in between the rain, for #SixonSaturday as July streams in!

Does anything say Summertime more than picking full, fresh peas straight from the pod? If you haven't yet sow any peas, it isn't too late to direct sow them straight into the ground for a harvest this year.
So what’s been happening your garden this week? Isn't June a fabulous month of colour as everything is looking lush and healthy in the garden? Here are my pick from the garden this week for #SixonSaturday!
If you've been awaiting a downpour from the skies with baited breath and it comes, do you feel like you can actually smell the rain? You can, and this pleasant smell has a name.
