Six on Saturday 25-11-23

Thanksgiving for some, a crazy shopping weekend for others, and for the rest of us, just another dark dreary end-of-autumn weekend. So I went out to find some garden joy, and thus here are my #SixOnSaturday.

I thought I’d start with an autumn favourite. A few stems of sedum have defied the wind and rain and are still standing proud, though this weekends frosts could well be the end for them.

I love the texture of the spiky, yet soft, foliage and stems of borage. There are still a few shy blooms creeping into flower too.

Bang! The very last of the cotinus leaves are bursting with joy.

A little more demure, a lovely coloured geranium is doing its best to keep entertaining us.

Autumn is a great time too for noticing that hardy fuschia CAN make it through the Scottish seasons….often these plants die to the ground in winter but can sprout back from the roots to give lovely colour now.

And last, I managed a flip round the garden before the frost hit, to collect some flowers and herbs for an autumn vase of loveliness. I am particularly enjoying the look of the parsley flowers here.

There goes my surprisingly colourful #SixOnSaturday for this week. Join the sixes on Mastodon or other instances in the Fediverse via #SixOnSaturday, we need a few more folk to toot on the topic: come join us. All you need to do is find 6 things in your garden to show us. Then post on social, or add a link at Jim’s blog below. For regulars, our organiser is Jim at Also on twitter @JamesLStephens. And I’m on mastodon
