Poor weather today.

A washout this morning.

A washout this morning.

Looking out at the garden earlier and with the state of todays weather the only way out will be to spend some time indoors.Mainly in the seed room and also to look through some garden notes and vegetable books.Now that we fast approach the end of the year,then soon the stretch will come back in the evenings and we will all get back on track with outdoor gardening.

One day for a book and a fire, and dreaming.

Oh my God, what a day!

Thank you all.

A desperate day.The rain is bad enough but the wind has gotten even worse in the last 2 hours or so.Some of the flower pots in the front met me at the gate in the last hour or so and i headed straight for the garden to check the tunnel and greenhouse for any wind damage.With the help of our friend the flash lamp all is ok.

The pots look a right mess here now Rachel.Fran,a day for the book and fire for sure,but in a short while i will be off for my final Wednesday night card game for this year.It wont be the winning of the turkey that will really worrie me, but the hand i will be dealt for the outcome of the tunnel with the wind.

John, hope the tunnel will be ok.
