    Some flowers look so much at home in a round frame Cathy especially the rose and the allium. Six beauties.

    Short and sweet; like Six on Saturday should be according to the guidelines. I sometimes feel guilty about being so brief with mine. I do try to limit the text.

      I find sometimes I am manipilating something I want to say or show into the SoS format – but for this one I was just trying to be as quick as I could!

  3. Pauline says:

    All beautiful, love the shaggy poppy!

  4. Chloris says:

    How artistic, all in roundels. And such beauties. I love the shaggy poppy.

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Chloris, I passed some even prettier poppies on the verge today which I wouldn’t mind getting some seeds from so they can pop up in our garden too!

    I’m guilty of NOT being short and sweet with SOS.

  6. Cathy says:

    That poppy is simply gorgeous! 😃

    • Cathy says:

      It has been appearing in the garden ever since we have been here. I know you sometimes use these roundels, Cathy, but is there a way to make them any smaller? I am sure they don’t come up this size on your blog.

      • Cathy says:

        I just tried it out and mine are just as big and no matter what I adjust in the gallery options it always turns out that size… if I find out how to do smaller ones I’ll let you know!

  7. I like this way of presenting the flowers – very nice!

    So perfectly formed, the flower heads, the circles and the post itself! Have I a favourite? Indeed no. Each one is top notch! Bravo.

    • Cathy says:

      Aw thanks, Padraig – and for me it was a quick cop-out as we were opening the garden the next day and time was precious!! I haven’t used that format for ages and I was alarmed at how big the circles were, and couldn’t find any way of reducing them

      • Pádraig says:

        How did the open garden go for ye?

        • Cathy says:

          Very well thanks, Padraig. We are unlikely ever to get huge numbers (thankfully!) but had over 90 between the 2 days, all happy with what they saw and the tea and cake too 😊

          • Pádraig says:

            That’s wonderful, Cathy. Marion & I are having a Garden Open Day on the 24th,rsising funds for the local Samaritans branch. We are excited, but mindful of having a gathering in these worrying times.

          • Cathy says:

            People were very good about keeping their distance and would have worn masks if requested. Best of luck with your opening, especially with the charity involved. Our openings were for the NGS but I give a % of plant and refreshment sales to our local branch, and one of my ‘colleagues’ is opening hers for the branch next week. Fundraising is an ongoing necessity, even more so after this last year
