I survived the tail end of hurricane Bertha!

When old mother nature comes knocking at our door in the early hours of the morning what can we expect? I understand from the weather people that the UK has just been hit by a large, summer storm system that was the tail end of hurricane Bertha. Over the weekend there has been torrential rain and flooding and very strong winds.

In the garden the flowers have been bashed, half my raspberry canes are down and the runner beans have flopped over. But I am lucky I live at the top of a hill (yes there are few hills in Norfolk), and I feel very sorry for all the folks who have woken up to flooded houses. I hope the summer wind will dry out their rooms as fast as possible.

Meanwhile earlier this evening I set about saving the beans and spied this little beauty struggling on in less than ideal conditions.

  1. You need to get a t-shirt printed with that slogan…or not! Nice close ups of your floral survivors – non manual mode on the camera is like a new language and must be practiced often or forgotten … I know from sad experience.
