    Philip your garden is so full of flowers for this time of year!! I wish I could say mine was too but the rain has flattened everything. I hope the forecasted winds don't materialise and that you have your blooms for a good while yet.

    Hi Cheryl,..i have a feeling we will be flattened,..most people are thinking the forecast is underestimated and winds will be way higher than the mid 90 mph strength,..this storm is coming all the way from the USA,..there could be seeds in this wind lol,..the saying is,..its an ill wind..........

    ======================================================

    Hi Janab,..you sure are in a beautiful area,..sorry the snow is arriving so soon,..its the thought of snow and cold with all its attachments that makes it so unwelcome.

    ======================================================

    Hi Eileen,..good morning to you,..you too are an early riser,..i woke with a hunger for a good breakfast with black pudding,..rashers some sausages and a sunny side up egg :rolleyes: .

    Like your location we just had lots of rain,..a full three days,..it was heavy showers which destroys the blooms luckily we are having a mild spell to date.

    Gorgeous blooms! I think the cold rain and occasional snow flakes are finishing my garden off right now. There are also high winds predicted for later this afternoon.
