Six on Saturday 1-6-24

Lots going on at the start of June. I’m showing some favourite blooms today for #SixOnSaturday, many of which are edible.

Red-flowered broad beans give a big beautiful early splash of colour to the veg garden, and hopefully we’ll be dining on their beans by the middle of June.

Rather more diminutive, I have to dive into the border to clear around this lovely little geum so that it can bloom surrounded by garden thugs.

It was a cool and very wet spring, so I suspect strawberries will be a little late this year, but here they come nonetheless.

Chives offer wonderful flowers in early June, these have a delicious sharp and spicey taste, great for sprinkling on top of a salad.

Simple, small, but due to bring fruit much later in the summer, the delicate flowers on blueberry bushes are now fully engaged.

Last but not least, and certainly not edible. I love the blast of orange from this bright euphorbia.

I guess this post counts as the first from my colourful early summer garden for #SixOnSaturday this week, hope you enjoyed the blooms. 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
