What's the weather like in your area?

We got it and how, my Daughter dashed up and dropped off my grandson off school with a bad stomach and Max the dog. She had a lot to do but owing to Stockton being almost cut off by flooding she was called to pick up Granddaughter from school early then could not get back here.
They raised the banks on the Lustrum beck years ago and it worked until today, every beck was over the top and we have lots of them.
Daughter made it here at around five and was dashing back before more heavy rain arrived. I was unable to shop so it was panackelty today, it went down well with us and the dogs.

Rain my idea for washing down inside the grrenhouse never took off, it went almost black then down it came I could not see across the road, it has calmed down a bit being just a deluge at the moment, the wind must be coming behind it.

Stockton heavy rain says the boxer, not at the moment quite dry but very low dark cloud so it will be correct before the day is over.
I am really happy the garden got its big clean up last week, the greenhouse is nearly empty at the moment so an inside job washing it down, a load of pots need cleaning too, never a dull moment.

A  Correction,
I should have said David Brown Tractors with the big wings (probably because the RAF used them in hundreds) and not John Brown as I did say, apologies to officianado's.

Hello Posh, did you get the last e-mail I sent???

My mothers extended family lived in Middlesbrough in Street houses so no chance of livestock or fresh food apart from the market, we supplied a lot of what added to their wartime rations. I could jump on the bus at Norton Green and get of in North Ormesby market walk down the street with a couple of bags of veg and bacon or the odd fowl.
I remember the local Barber pestering me for something to put in the oven at Christmas, in the end my Dad said that old hen has stopped laying knock it over and give him that (or sell I should say), I kept out of his way for weeks thinking it would be the toughest bird they ever had but when he did catch me he was asking if we had any more?

Cuttings - what happens next?

Sue, Patience is a gardeners best tool sit and wait is the way to go.
Penstemon, 3-4 inch pot of loam peat and grit, pop in a cold frame or greenhouse and then in Spring plant out the rooted cuttings.
Same with all the others I would not cover them if they are in a greenhouse as it can cause damp problems, as long as they are under cover out of draughts and can get light, keep them just damp through the coldest periods then watch them come to life in the spring.

Rain, so sorry to hear that, I do know the heart break of losing an animal close to you. They have such a short life span compared with ours yet they are never forgotten.

Stockton Heavy rain, it should have said very heavy rain and never stopped all day, the wind was whipping it into the windows and the rain was running down the road, glad I live at the top of the bank.
Zoomer you would not have got through today the main roads were nearly all closed by accidents from early on.
