It’s a white out in my garden. There are footprints from the wildlife and frozen flora abounds. I was going to give you a peek into next week’s project: new paths. The path project is a big one and ‘the professionals’ are coming in to do it. Work is scheduled to start on Monday and fortunately temperatures are set to rise. As the paths are covered with snow I’m going to show you some pictures of the garden last summer. There will be the odd glimpse of the path along the way, but more importantly there is some beautiful colour from plants that were sown from seed last year and from the frozen perennials that now lie under the snow.
This is the top end of the border. Sweet pea, cosmos purity and nicotiana lime green were sown from seed. The lambs ears in the foreground looked bedraggled in last week’s six. Will they survive after the freezing weather of this week? This path is staying. It’s not very attractive and if I had a magic wand it would be transformed into a lovely brick cottage garden path. I have also planted alchemella mollis and geranium brookside, both of which tumble onto the path edges.
It’s a bit of a bending of the rules this week, but did you really want 6 shades of white? I am curious to see what other sixers will post. I encourage you to take a look at The Propagator’s blog and see what materialises. I am hoping all UK sixers are warm, dry and safe this weekend. Over to you in the sunnier climes!
