A Week of Flowers 2021, Day Five

Time is flying by and we are on Day Five of my Week of Flowers. Please do join in if you would like to, and post a flowery photo or two (adding your link in the comments below) for the last few days of my now annual meme, intended to brighten up the drab winter days in the northern hemisphere. If you have missed the last four days, the links are in the sidebar. Enjoy!

Geum chiloense ‘Blazing Sunset’

I am in need of some warm colours today, so am sharing deep orange and red.

The Geum ‘Blazing Sunset’ is now in several spots in the garden. I grew a few plants from seed a few years ago and they have proved to be very resilient to whatever extremes of weather we get! One day, if I ever track one down, I would like the famous ‘Tangerine Dream’ Geum, which I first saw on the blog of our dear blogging friend Dorris, who took part in this meme last year. She very sadly passed away suddenly a week later. We never met, but she was a great inspiration to me, and a great gardener. 💕

The sunflower above is most probably Earth Walker and was a beauty. (Next year I will label the sunflowers!) The last photo is a Blanket Flower grown for the first time this summer. Sweet memories.

Wishing you all a warm cosy Advent Sunday and many thanks again for reading and/or joining in. This is doing me the world of good! 😃🤗
