Just been for an hour long walk around the village. One tree down from a hedge by a park and a large branch off a tree in the infant school playground (think they had better get the tree looked at!).

One thing I noticed, all the flowers in the hedgerows and gardens were smelling beautiful. the honeysuckle ascent was very strong. Not good for hay fever sufferers but it was lovely to walk by all these scents.

Hi all it is now sunny in Glasgow was cloudy earlier and just a little wind. I think that been in a hollow where I live we missed the brunt of it.

wind has dropped today but the garden now needs sorting out. Hopefully i will stay dry as I have just put washing out. One bonus was the first load of holiday washing was dried, ironed and put away by 6 oclock yesterday and we only got home at 12.15.

Hi all,
My back garden is now a mess with plant pots strewn all over the place & hanging baskets looking bedraggled after yesterdays gale force winds here in North Lincolnshire. Unfortunately I didn't see the weather forecast!
The front garden is strewn with leaves, branches & conkers from my neighbours trees. Between them they have 3 conker trees.You can't see the lawn, so I guess I will be spending the day out there clearing up. Can't believe we're having this weather in June.

Swirly and blustery here at the mo. Lancashire
Throughout the day my conker tree has lost 5 boughs and the pots of flowers have blown about. There's also a whistling sound in the conservatory.........I hope the roof isn't going to blow off.
Hold tight everyone. Tuck your bed sheets in tonight !

Blustery but warm and dry in the far south east, today.

Great for drying washing.



Harpstrings Report 22 Jun 2008 20:52

Well I think we can blame the sundancers thread from last night - they were doing it wrong lol

Had thunder and lightning here in Bristol last night so had to switch puter off. Today is extremely blustery indeed.

If the weatherman has said it is to improve later on then he is lying, cos it always rains when Wimbledon is on - well 9 times out of 10 lol.

Keep safe everyone.
