Forty minutes up my garden in the very strong wind and still raining was quite enough of picking up debris for me. That Jet Stream has a lot to answer for this year. I thought it was finished its meanderings for this year but no. I should be deadheading bluebells and pulling up hundreds of forget me nots before they seed everywhere but instead I am gathering up armfuls of twigs and branches snapped off by the fierce winds, but there are buds on the hemerocallis, more late tulips opening, and potatoes reaching for the skies. Rant over. A cup of coffee will help get me back out there. I reckon there is twelve more hours of tidying to do. A piecs of scaffolding has blown down from the house opposite which is awaiting repairs to the chimney so I will not venture out if the wind is as foerce as yesterday.
