Before going to the plot on Tuesday morning to check that all was okay following the storm I had to go out and was surprised at the number of toppled roadside trees that I saw. One large one had fallen onto several new cars parked on a showroom forecourt.
Everything was okay at the plot where my main concern had been debris from other plots. Walking round the site I could see that some greenhouses had lost glass panels and this one, thankfully glassless beforehand, had just collapsed.
Yesterday morning there was a frost for the first time this autumn. It was calm and sunny so I spent a couple of hours mostly cutting back the comfrey to ground level to add to the compost heap and removing the support canes from the now flowerless and leafless sunflowers. I also started to pull up the pot marigolds which have finished flowering, unlike this one.
Happy Birthday to Glo (Porcelain Rose), although I’m a day early as it’s not until tomorrow. I took this rose Pretty Lady photo this morning just for you. Have a lovely day!
Have a good weekend!
