Windy weather!

by Wendy Syddall

Living in this part of the country – north west England we get all sorts of weathers. None very extreme but it’s been up to 33 miles an hour wind these past few days. I thought I had prepared the garden well – attaching new seedlings to wooden sticks and attaching the sweetpeas to their sticks. However, this isn’t normal windy weather and so plants in pots have been falling over and not the little plants but a magnolia in a pot and a tomato plants and several others.

According to my Facebook memories we’ve had bad weather at this time of year the past few years!

We’ve been daring and put the washing out today, it’ll get dry if it stays on the line!

Anyway, I just wanted to share a couple of pictures of firsts for the season – first dahlia which I grew from seed last summer and first sweet William with a lovely light scent. I’ve come to appreciate scent more and more the past few years. Til next time, hope you don’t get blown away in the wind!
