However, most of the gardens are all but under water, standing water sits over all the half hardy annuals optimistically sown early, I fear they will not survive. Masses of weeding is still in waiting, it may be waiting for a very long time. The greenhouse is now a green house as it is completely sheeted in green tarpaulins after gusts removed panes. But spring will one day come again and all will one day be well. I hope.
