The occasional eagle visits from the nearby Paradise Park.  Hugely impressive aren't they?  Apparently they don't fly too far.

Punkdoc, not really variegated.  New leaves are butter yellow. ,leaves now are olive coloured.  I topiarise mine.....tight pyramids...and the summer growth produces those lovely yellow leaves on arching stems.  

I too think the variegated leaf is that of a euonymous, maybe gaiety. (not a clear pic on  my iPad )  Definitely not lonicera.  So...wegeila,,Lonicera and,euonymous.

Hiya KEF,

Now hearing about all sorts of problems.  Winds supposed to increase to 90 mph.  Even more  More trees down. Far from a comfortable feeling.  So many roads now gridlocked or impassable. 

Far from an expert Panda but Xmas Rose is not the lenten rose.....both hellebores though.  

HELLO FORKERS!

Fidget, lovely hellebores 

Wot a day!

At foodbank I offered to take a client and his food bags home for him.  However, where he lives a huge hole has opened up in the road.  No traffic can pass.  I took back lanes that became mud tracks and farm lanes packed with mud and overflowing water.  Got stuck in the mud.  Managed to get going again eventually,to enter the village from obscure lane.  Frustrating, worrying, annoying but managed eventually to get him home.  

The weather here right now is worse than I can remember.  83 mph howling wind, heavy rain and pretty scary I guess.  Trees down, power off in some places, cables down, property damage ( window blown in locally) roads closed and blocked and, if anything, it seems to be getting worse.    Tomorrow morning will tell just how bad it all is.

Already flooded areas are now even worse with high winds blowing the high tides Imto properties.  It all seems unreal.  Such repeat bad storms on a daily basis it seems over the past month or more. 

Take care everybody....it seems most of you will suffer this storm too. Batten down everything ??ou can, make sure every GH window is tightly securely closed, etc etc.
