Miserable weather

I spied this lone freesia in the garden this morning, not yet rain soaked but I suspect by tonight it will be looking quite bedraggled.

The broad beans are a little bit the worse for wear, they don't really like a lot of wind, but I'm hopeful they will pull through ok.

The rain gauge showed 19mm from yesterday, another 20mm or so would be good as we are still down on last years 85mm.


  1. Batten down the hatches, Pip! It's gonna be a wild night! 7 degrees here at lunch time.
    Hope there's not too much damage up your way.

    Cheers - Joolz

  2. Wild weather isn't it. I'm expecting all my johnquills to be flat on the ground by morning. :0(

  3. Yes I mad the mistake of putting some new herbs & plants in thinking spring was coming needless to say they are a bit flat now - murphys law I guess.

  4. Ohhh the smell of freesia's....spring is surely in the air!
