Six on Saturday in The Fortnight Garden

There has been some rain, and some sunshine, and The Fortnight Garden is looking ok, although perhaps a little weary? Anyway, I have some new sights to share with The Propagator this week!

1. Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’ is out in force and turning the patio bed bright gold! I planted perhaps three a few years ago and now I have a solid patch.

2. Potentilla ‘Primrose Beauty’ is still flowering strongly and looking better this year than ever before. It combines well with the rudbeckias, I think.

3. Montbretia, the common orange variety, is flowering amongst some grasses and I like the hint of orange in the bed.


4. Conference pears are swelling nicely!

5. Japanese anemone ‘Honorine Jobert’ is finally starting to flower. I think the bed is getting more sunshine and the plants are starting to spread. I am pleased!

6. And lastly, the bees continue to devour the echinacea!

Echinacea with bee!

And those are my Six on Saturday and I look forward to reading what has caught the attention of my fellow gardeners!


  1. Your Rudbeckia look fab, but the photo of the bee is the star today! The flower looks as if it is doing a waltz! And my pink Japanese anemones have been flowering for a week now, I doubt they are going to last into September at this rate!

    • Yes, my pink anemones are also well into flowering – hasn’t it been odd? PLeased you like the bee! The idea of dancing flowers is rather nice – I might play!

  2. Goodness, those Rudbeckia are eye catching and your photos are catching the sun shining on them perfectly. I love the photo of the bee on the Echinacea too.

  3. Ditto on the Rude Becky, but my o my the pears . . . I swoon. That bee is really nestled in there, isn’t it? Your garden must be looking fantastic at the moment.

I'd love to hear from you!
