I think that this is the tail end of the hurrican in the States, Speedy. There was so much that Mg and I wanted to do outside today but the wind was just so unpleasant. It wasn't just the strength of the wind itself, but every few minutes ther would be these gusts that were even stronger. At least we haven't had heavy raine with it but the Met Office says that the strong winds will last all week :-(!!!!

Sorry to hear your news. It seems you had some nasty weather. I hope it's improved now, and that you can get your garden back into shape.
