Six word Saturday


Does this say Summer to you?



What do you think?  Jude is asking for The Essence of Summer this month.  Wonderful what you can do with a sunny hour or two, isn’t it?



Spot the intruder!  This was going to be all about the Iris, but I was very taken with the Cersiums and I’m afraid they just sneaked in. Jude is busy in her new garden but she’ll make time to say hello.

Have a great weekend, and don’t forget Cate.  Another, very busy lady.  This is my 200th Six Word Saturday!  Maybe I should quit while I’m ahead.



  1. It does say summer loud and clear and it is a lovely sight as we start to cool down over here. I even had a warm “cardy” type thing on today. Latest fad here is long, straight, almost to the knees cardigan…


    1. I’m tempted to say ‘what Summer?’ Suze, but that would be very negative, wouldn’t it? 🙂 The village had drizzly Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations today and we had 2 lovely days last week. That’s a start, isn’t it? Hugs 🙂 I bet you’re doing better!


      1. If I adjust it any more I’ll be living in the Arctic. 🙂 The good news is, all was jolly in the village. What’s a few soggy scarecrows between friends?


    1. It’s a little strange, isn’t it? If you follow my link ‘Cate’ it will take you to this week’s entries. On the pink header is the link to the home page which explains. You need to use six words to describe your week, but you can do it any way you want, and take liberties as most people do (especially me 🙂 ). If you decide to take part, you go to ‘Cate’ and put your link for this week in as the next entry. Join in next week? 🙂

      1. I came to your blog from “Lost in translation” 🙂 What is strange ? 🙂
        For the link I visit it. 🙂
        Ok six words to describe my week. I laugh. 🙂 ok I can try for next week. I’ll go again on the link to read what is written. 🙂 Before participate, I want understand the game 🙂 I write with my school english, sorry for my mistakes.


      2. Your English is great! My school girl French extremely rusty! 🙂 The rules are very loose and you can interpret them any way you want. The idea is just to have fun, and meet a few people, of course. Nice talking to you. It’s wet here and I’m blogging between making Sunday lunch.


    1. Thank you, Peta 🙂 This is a rose garden, newly opened last Summer. It was our first return visit since then and the irises were beautiful, taking away the bareness till the roses bloom.


  2. le iris, o giaggioli, come si chiamano da noi, sono il fiore prediletto della mia Toscana, il simbolo della città di Firenze e quindi da noi amatissimi e molto coltivati, ma se ne trovano in grandi quantità anche spontanei in giro per la campagna, ne hai dato splendide immagini
    grazie, buona domenica cara Giovanna


    1. I’d forgotten the connection with Florence, Annalisa. Thanks for reminding me. How I’d love to be in your wonderful countryside right now. Hugs, sweetheart 🙂 🙂


    1. This rose garden is only about a year old, Lynn, and it was such a pleasure to find these irises flooding the place with colour while they wait for the roses to bloom. 🙂 Happy Sunday! How are the birdies?


  3. Gorgeous photos and flowers! Happy summer and happy 200th Six Word Saturday. Don’t stop now, though. At 300 or 400 or 500 you will still be ahead as well, so you can always stop then.


      1. Raining here as well, unfortunately. Why always on the weekends? I exclaimed my annoyance in my Six Word Saturday post today! I feel better now. 🙂


  4. Don’t you dare stop the 6WS! I need at least another 200! Lovely flowers. Irises always make me smile. Hope you are doing well Jo!
