Windy - get your pots secure...

Posted: 10/01/2015 at 09:29

Been fortunate here, some perspex out of the old GH and a large pot blown sideways, metal bench blown across patio but came to rest against bags of FYM, kale uprooted but didn't much like kalo nero anyway. Looked in our loft expecting to see daylight but okay. 

Neighbours new front fence ripped off and another has lost felt from shed roof. Wheelie bins galore. 

Sadly I think this is going to be a busy thread over the next few days. 

Good advice Bob.

Glad you got your morning exercise Tootles 

Soz about your fence Vic, and car 

NGCARDS hope GH okay this time.

Hi Clari & Lesley.

Clari be careful out there. 

I've had a quick look outside and a terracotta pot (with a mature palm in it) that is 2' high x 18" across filled with John Innes 3 and pebbles on the top has been blown sideways off the 3 bricks it was standing on  thankfully it is now leaning on the wall and steps and not in pieces on the patio. 

Lesley kitchen gardening sounds an excellent idea

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

David I think it is always a big help to see photos of what to do  Fidget did that for people who are propagating Brugmansia and that helped me 

Not a sweet pea grower  well not this coming summer

Good morning.

Have fun Dove.

Lily I hope you don't hurt too much this morning

Chicky try not to dwell on what happened, hugs 

Lizzie a big decision to make about the boiler not just the expense but the disruption 

Up the workers

Doubt many of us will get any gardening done looking at the weather nationwide, think we'd better stay safe and warm instead.

Matty very best wishes for Tuesday and a cancer free future 

Lyn I don't know what I'd do in your situation it must be so hard to accept your Mum's decision, hugs.

Joyce blue badges are granted by the local council we have one for mum. You'll need two passport type photos of your dear friend ready for when you apply. What a great friend you are to her. Hugs.

Runny I bet you deliver a good kick especially when standing on your head 


Dove Hope all goes okay with son's friends. 

BitterK I worked for a dementia charity. Did do fund raising at weekends and evenings but that was my choice

I'll say tara for tonight, pooter upstairs and I don't like the noise in the loft. 

Stay safe everyone.

Wintersong having been a 9-5 week day worker I do tend to forget others that keep us going 7/7 , sorry

Thankfully me neither Pauline   

Thanks BM & Lesley ( hope you've managed to clear the tree) we've been to M's and some damage but nothing major it will get sorted when we do the stuff damaged from weight of snow. Neither of us tip top and sawing and shifting wasn't on the cards. 

The wind eased about 11am was replaced by rain and now blowing strongly again 

I went to GC yesterday, no seed spuds   another two weeks before delivery but I did get some more veg seeds, against the law to come home empty handed.

Lovely pics of lovely ladies today, dunno if it is a wise move  if anyone does get any unwanted attention please shout up and also report it.

Lyn you aren't on your own at having GOW days, I do them often, hope you are happier now.     

Yippee it's Friday for the salt miners
