Isn't it just crazy weather?
I haven't done any gardening for the last two days except to bring my tender plants in at night. Other years would have had them in the ground by now but frankly I don't trust the nighttime temps at all! Luckily my garden doesn't suffer from water-logging but the wind damage is shocking. Aquilegias are ripped to shreds, flowering Parsley is flattened, pots upturned, Roses are shedding petals as fast as they open and my Oriental Poppy clump is a mess! On the good side, my self sown seedlings and the wild flowers that I let grow are having a great time. and I haven't had to cart the watering can to the end of the garden several times an evening although I really enjoy this job when the evening is gorgeous!
I hope Lilylouise's garden is not suffering with all this terrible weather! I don't think its long before her big show? Good luck with that.
@Tazman, make sure your file size is web appropriate, which can be done through Window's Office, Picture manager or photo-bucket. If you use the former as I do, open your file using this software and go to the edit function, there is a pre-select Web, Large which is ideal.
Look forward to seeing your hard work. And best of luck to everyone else battening down their hatches.
