On the wildest, yet mildest of days!

20 comments


I couldn’t resist going into the garden to get a few photos on this very stormy day. It seemed to be challenging me to go out there.

I fear that a lot of damage will have been caused in parts of the UK. I am dreading seeing the news later on.
I hope that all of you are safe and that your gardens haven’t suffered too much.

Here are my photos……..some sheltered and some windswept ones.


A few flowers are braving the gales and the primulas don’t seem to know which season it is!


As I am putting this blog together it is getting even rougher and wilder out there.
The Autumn colours cheer up this grey scene but will there be any leaves left tomorrow?


I do hope that all is well with you.

Great photos wild rose, we are having similar weather on Salisbury Plain, very strange light.

It's been very windy here too wildrose (Heathrow) but the worst time was between 2pm and 4pm when the sky was so dark I was expecting a torrent of rain but nothing. The planes carried on through it and it's lightened up a bit now. I don't like to think about Wales and Ireland who seem to have had the worse of the storm according to the radio news.

Glad you and your plants are alright. Got very dark here this afternoon, no rain thought. Got all my washing dried outside, good drying weather.

Love your cotoneaster !
Lots of drama here in Pembrokeshire - hope Sandra is OK as she's facing the sea with no shelter. I don't think there are going to be any flowers left by tomorrow as its been going hell for leather all day. See todays Western Telegraph for some dramatic pics.

Lovely colours you ve have love your roses .

No problems here Chris, just a very windy noisy night's sleep. No damage. I was fascinated by the red sky in some people's photos on the t.v. It was far too cloudy here to have a red tinge, but it was nevertheless very eerie. Back to normal grey clouds and wind today. :) Well done for going out and taking some lovely photos!

You've got some lovely colours in your garden Chris - I do hope most of them survived. We escaped the worst of the wind - just the weird yellow sky yesterday.

Thanks to you all for looking. I am glad that you are all ok after the battering we all had yesterday.

Today has been the total opposite weather wise. It is so grey and still, and my line of washing is still as damp as when it went out early this morning!

What's next?!!

Indeed....who can say? ;)

It's been very windy here Chris, but thankfully no damage. You've got some wonderful colour blooming in your garden. I hope they're all OK.

Lovely photos of your garden Chris. I hope there wasn't any damage.
We had nothing here except a brisk breeze and we had some nice blue skies too ... strange when everyone else seemed to be experiencing the storm.

Nothing here either except that weird, but beautiful reddish colour.

Glad to hear no one on GOY has reported excessive damage.

A lovely display of colour ,Chris..and glad you didn't have any damage from the Gales..ours was through the night,but no damage..We were blessed with the Yellow/Orange sky and a beautiful red sun till lunchtime....I see your Primula's are flowering too,and mine have been on and off over summer..Aren't the Sedums looking so good too ? Let's hope they flower when they should ,in the spring ! :o)

Have just heard that 'Storm Brian' is on 'his' way, affecting us on Saturday. Oh dear, not again!!

Outstanding garden wildrose

Lovely pictures, Wildrose. It is surprising what a variety of plants are still flowering in mid-October. Mum has some iris which appeared a few weeks ago. Lovely, though.

Thank you for adding comments here, it is so lovely to read them.
Bathgate, at the moment it is a very messy garden! We have a tulip tree and most of the leaves have just come down and seem to have landed just about everywhere!!

Its a strange autumn, no doubt about that, I too have primroses in flower and my poached egg plant is as good now as it was in June, you have some lovely colour going on in yours W'rose, glad you didn't suffer any damage, I was gardening away on Monday and didn't even notice the sun until it became cloudy and everywhere went pink, rained every day since, although its cleared up today a bit(Fri) is it the calm before the storm I ask myself, its sad to see what happened in other places and I'm thankful for where I live...

Lincslass, here the gales of yesterday were much rougher than Monday's weather! It was a westerly wind and swept right across our garden sweeping up every fallen leaf!!
Mind you, it was a horrible day and I was stuck indoors just looking at it! Hope it settles down a bit now.
