Six on Saturday: Two-a-penny

Aqualegia, perennial cornflower, forget-me-not, Welsh poppy, geranium, wild poppy

These common plants make my heart sing.  They are worth their weight in gold as they appear every year (not always in the same place), need no looking after but provide colour, form and ground cover aplenty.

Which would you choose from your garden?

The Propagator generously hosts Six on Saturday.  Click on the link to his blog to see what he and his followers are growing and doing in their gardens this week.  Perhaps you feel you could add your own six too.


  1. Definitely the geranium and the Welsh poppy (the yellow one). Common plants are great, just as you say.
