We've not had any damage that we can see ... so far ... but I've a feeling it's not over yet ... I think we have another noisy night ahead of us.

Yvie ((hugs))  I think fed-up-ness can come from strange air pressure, noisy wind etc - we'll all feel so much better when the wind drops and the sun comes out again

plant id please

Funny looking paeony 

I think that poster is in the US - perhaps it looks different from that far away

My paeonies certainly look quite different

A very very long time ago when my grandfather was a small boy Dr W G Grace was staying on our family farm to go shooting with Gt Grandfather. 

My grandfather fell into a ditch full of stinging nettles and as he was wearing shorts his legs were badly stung. 

The story goes that Dr Grace pulled him out of the ditch, patted him on the head and said, "There there young man,  if you're brave and don't cry, I'll send you a cricket bat when I get home." 

A cricket bat duly arrived, complete with an inscribed silver plaque to my grandfather from Dr W. G. Grace.  It was my job to oil it when I was a child.  Now my brother has it
