Six on Saturday 23-3-24

New flowers, new life, it’s all happening in the garden for this week’s #SixOnSaturday. Now that we are past the equinox I’m going to have to work hard somehow (still not 100% leg-wise) to keep up with all the new growth.

First this week must be narcissus. I don’t know what variety this little doffodil is, but she look’s like she’s in a hurry.

We have a pond located fairly near the bathroom window. The last couple of weeks, the bathroom has been filled with a symphony of frogs all night. And the result is a huge clump of frog-spawn. I hope it doesn’t get too damaged in the frosts predicted for this weekend.

As promised a few week’s ago, species tulip ‘Turkmenistan’ is now in full flower. Tiny little flower fully open up to show what is very a much a wildflower.

Primroses offer a lovely little burst of brightness in spring, always coming just a couple of week’s later than I expect. This one is far from the wild-type pale colour, but I love the bold brightness.

I am never sure if I like forsythia. Bright, cheerful, yes, but rather gaudy. Each flower though, if looked at carefully, has an intricate form.

I’ll finish up today with a tub of drumstick primula at their absolute peak. How lovely.

Thanks for viewing my spring picks for #SixOnSaturday this week. And thanks to those leaving comments on the blog – sorry if i don’t always get back to you on time! The blog is going well, but it would be great if more folk on Mastodon, or other parts of the Fediverse got into tooting a Six! Go on, its a much kinder form of social media, not controlled by crazy billionaires. 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 And I’m on mastodon
