Six on Saturday: 28 September 2019

More images from Westonbury Mill Water Gardens – proving that foliage is just as interesting as flower.

The silver and green variegation on this plant really ‘popped’ in a shady border.

These end of season hostas have taken a battering, but they still have a faded beauty, despite their battle scars.

I’ve never looked closely at Gunnera leaves; they are rather pretty with their frilly edges and changing shades. I didn’t know they have spiky thorns either – until I touched one! This was only a small one.

Lambs ears? Whatever they are, I could stroke them for ages.

This has got to be a maple. In a few weeks, these leaves will have changed colour, but the day we visited, they looked so delicate and fresh against the blue of a September sky.

That’s my six. Next week I’ll be back to my own, rather dull, garden – waiting for butternut squashes to start forming and deciding if I’ve had enough of my runner beans. Meanwhile, have a break from whatever you’re doing and take a look at these other Sixes over on The Propagator’s plot.
