Six on Saturday 20-4-24

As spring wears on, the cool weather means that the tulips are JUST coming into their own, and hopefully they will last a good while. A couple of light splashes, and tulips, therefore seem fitting for this week’s #SinOnSaturday.

First this week, my favourite Thalia daffodil is a late bloomer, but here’s a huddle of simple pure white blooms.

To get tuplipy, I’ve managed to establish just a few tulips in the garden, mostly red ones. Somehow, they seem to have sneaked away from hungry mice.

For years I stuck to the red tulips that I love, but I’ve been becoming a little more adventurous. This one has a strangely faschinating orange-pink colouration.

This one seems to have found its way into my pot from someone elses collection. Amidst the pale red blooms a red-white striped one has arrived. Rather nice. I do like the slightly ruffled edges to each petal.

I’m not sure I like these, not quite the ‘purple’ I was promised. They may grow on me.

To set this all off, THIS is the week when my Japanese cherry is doing it’s thing. Always, just WOW. A mass of white blooms, and a mass of bees feeding.

Thanks for viewing my 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
