Storm Dennis Incoming

We have a stormy weekend ahead of us, and already my heaviest plant pot has been knocked over for the first time, so let's see how it goes.

I hope no-one ends up with a tree through the roof here, like happened last weekend.

I have been out a few times, as the rain hasn't been too bad so far, although that is sure to change overnight. Spray was being blown off the river, but it didn't stop the hardy anglers opposite the navigation pub, who always seem to be there at weekends whenever I go past.

There's some bizarrely early cowslips in the lock gardens, as well as vivid primroses and dwarf daffodils. The trees are starting to blossom too, although getting a picture was darn difficult to impossible as the wind blasted the boughs around.

Another flower that has now appeared is glory of the snow, the squill relative I can never remember the name of. Soon its blue carpets will replace those of the snowdrops in the cemetery and friary gardens.

  1. lovely flowers in your photos there, I like the cats too! Dennis hit Edinburgh too with wild winds and a fair amount of rain, several fallen trees and lots of fallen branches around the place

  2. They are hardy anglers! Lovely to see some colour arriving in gardens etc lately!
    Heavy rain here on Saturday and not much different on Sunday though thankfully less wind than the previous weekend!

  3. I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. Aluya a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.
    You can as well contact Dr.  Aluya  , a powerful spell-caster for solutions on his contact or directly on Whats App: +2348110493039
