Not the perfect day for Day Lilies.  High winds have swept through the garden in short but very powerful gust….  no real damage apart the broken stem on  one of the lily heads.

No real rescue possible but a record for the files.  Despite the strength of the wind it hadn’t dislodged any of the pollen that the Bees so love….


Early this morning it was a different day.  The sun looked promising and the lake, with a rippled surface still basked in the dawns sunshine…..



Then the wind woke up and started to exercise its powers.  Only consolation is that it would move the clouds along, so whilst showers are forecast. they shouldn’t last for too long.

What ever the weather, where ever you are….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
