Lost a few chard leaves and some small sunflowers have taken a battering, but nothing too bad, which is lucky. Looks like it's chard for dinner. Weather i starting to improve and the lashing rain has gone. image


edit: Tumultuous even. image

    I have a rosa rogusa hedge that took a battering last night, it is slightly out of control so i'm viewing it as pruningimage

    Ditto Nut. And every time my Quince waves past the window I think about pruning image

    Can't see any real damage image still blowing and wet here but suddenly it's warmer outdoors than in.

    However, I just popped down to Waitrose and some of the plants outside are definitely looking a bit battered - especially the formerly rather gorgeous deep purple/red lupins which have all got several broken spikes image

    Maybe I should go back tomorrow and see if they've been reduced image

  • Good idea doveimage only lost the tops off the potatoes in bags but they should be ready for lifting anyway image a small hanging basket took off and turned upside down, they must follow the professor Sod s theory of toast falling butter side downimage

    Still blowing a hooley but only damping so perhaps it's going through

    My main bit of planting is at near the foot of the house. So everything is now leaning even more pointedly away from the building, and looking a bit bedraggled. A couple of warm days and I'm sure it'll bounce back.

    It seems Cornwall copped it pretty bad, just had our electrician call, he is doing the wiring for the Cornwall show and last night the marquee went over and blew everywhere taking the wiring with it, he went to check it this morning and walked away, told them he wasnt touching it in this wind! Now he has to go tomorrow and get it all done in the day as the show opens Thursday.
