I've just seen that heavy rain is forecast for today then tomorrow we'll be battered by gusty winds of over 40 mph so I hope that you don't get any more damage to your house and garden Hollins.

I've just picked up all my fallen garden furniture and plant pots but I did that before I read about the forecast for tomorrow.     I suppose my game of golf will have to be cancelled tomorrow      :(

Third time lucky with this post. The forum demons don't like my big size phone photos.
Clearing up has begun but on a brighter note here are the flowers I picked from the garden last Sunday. What a difference a few days can make!

Glad you are getting things sorted, looking at the log pile,   :'(    I miss the days of using my chain saws, I loved being out, and working up in the hills around lynn Geirionydd, don't think I could even start one these days :(   hope you have a wood burner.

Big day at Bodnant Garden today to celebrate 100 years since women (some) got the vote and the involvement of Laura MacLaren and the suffrage movement.  Amazing wicker sculpture on the lily pond terrace to celebrate "unbind the wing" - it stands 14ft high and will be in situ for next few weeks.

We had a heavy frost here last night and the frost killed most of the Begonias and the Yucca Tree which had it's third  lot of flowers coming up this year and they will not have escaped the frost

Sorry you lost some things, Hugo.

It reminds me though, I need to bring in the tap timers, drain a pump, etc. for winter.  Plus I could do with a final mow for the season.  I'm running behind schedule.

There was a time when we had to bring some plants in and we have a couple of paraffin heaters that would keep a shed at least above freezing in most conditions but it's quite a few years since we did that.

The only plant move I'm aware of probably being needed, at least going by the instructions, is an indoor plant.  I got my mother a bonsai tree for her birthday and it lives in the living room but I think when we have the wood burner (sometimes) raging (and we are reaching the point where it will be needed at least for the evenings), it will want a cooler spot with more consistent temperature.
