Hurrcane Bills tail


By valadel


Weather forecast said we would get the tail end of Hurricane Bill and sure enough he got into my tiny back garden and blew over my lovely wroughtiron stand of pink petunias, there they wereflat on their faces!!—————- bad Bill !!I
I did manage to rescue them but they have lost their glory and look just a little sad, just as well its nearly the end of the season..

What a shame! They still look lovely from here tho! We have more rain than wind, but it was really windy for a few days before they told us about the tail!!

Sorry to hear of your plants Valadel. Perhaps they'll perk up for a few more weeks yet.

Its wild & wooly in Perth today too! Really windy & pretty cold! Rained last two days as well!
Ah, that explains why it looked so good! I must admit, I did wonder just HOW good it looked b4, as I thought that was the "after" pic!

Bill did a good job here and flattened alot of my plants, but removed and put in some new ones.
