Another week has flown by and it’s time to join ThePropagator‘s weekly meme thing where we present, for your delectation, six things that are in our gardens on a Saturday. I’ve spent the week removing things: plants that are past their best or which have failed to do as I would like and the latest shoots of a bears breeches that I’m determined to remove. I think I’m getting there as there are no longer several new shoots poking their noses up at me every week. There’s only been one this time. Maybe, just maybe, I am now nearing the acanthus-free time. But this is about what is IN the garden, not what IS NOT. So here is the selection of the Rivendell Garden jury.
What I haven’t chosen includes a repeat visit to dierama, now flowering madly in all their colours over the pond, some fibrous begonias, more daylilies, heucheras, tiarellas, the list goes on. But I will leave you with something that is no longer in the garden: a tree!

I have the same fuchsia in the oldhouse garden. No idea what it is and it’s tough as old boots!
I just call mine the Llandudno fuchsia. I hear they’ve been tidying up that garden in Llandudno. I wonder if the parent “tree” is still there.
Fuchsias are such good value garden plants at this time of year.
And in this case, totally free apart from a bit of cutting compost when I got it home. Once they get going it’s no time between the first few buds breaking and the whole plant being covered in flowers.
