Good luck for the storm everyone

Posted: Today at 12:49

The BBC need to do some scientific studies methinks, if that’s what they’ve said.

The dust comes across every year, it needs to get to the US. The storm hasn’t dragged it up, it’s part of our eco system.  

Every year you can see the dust on car windscreens,  seems BBC are doom mongering and blaming Ophelia.

Have to agree with Raisin Girl, you learn here not to grow tall plants, put all pot and tubs behind something, the trees that were reaching the bungalow are now kept cut, we did lose the shed roof but as said, it was doomed anyway.

Having said that, the sky is the most horrible yellowGrey shade and the lights are on in the bungalow. 

The worst of the wind here comes from the North West, straight off the Moor, then you do have to nail things down, fortunately we don’t get many of those. 

Clari, I was in a similar situation, I will send you a PM though, but I dare say you have been inundated with PM’s πŸ˜‰

Good luck for the storm everyone

Don’t think it will be that bad in West Devon either, we’ve had worse winds than 56 mph. It’s looks to be sunny so can’t be bad,πŸ˜€

The leaves will all go brown and drop off for the winter.

I was very pleased with my plugs from parkers this year. Don’t often buy plants but at that price it was worth it to me as I was very busy.  They were just the very tiny ones to bring on. 

I wrote and told them they were perfect. Doesn’t take a minute and they do like feedback.

theyve always been extremely courteous to me in the past, only fair I do the same.

I find if you want to send a photo to someone you need to click on ‘Message ‘ on the bottom of one of their posts.  There’s no photo facility  on the Avatar way.
