The pots of #daffodil-tete-a-tete are fully in bloom having survived the storms - what a difference a week makes - such a glorious day today here in Devon. Have a lovely Friyay!

Morning @juliesgarden me too they are more delicate and not so blousey as full size ones (although I don’t mind that I’ve inherited a garden full of full size ones 🤣)

Well that was a hoolie! 14 hours without electricity, cut off by fallen trees but all calm now.. so time to move the pots back from the covered deck, remove the weights from the trampoline, and check the greenhouse! Hope you are all safe and well

Glad you are all safe and back on the grid🤗. We got off lightly here, well in my garden at least, only a fence panel down. It was quite scary watching the gusts of wind charging through the trees at such a force.

Awh thank you @cee we were surprisingly ok too! Although I’ve never run so fast as when there was a big crack from the oak tree in the chicken run 🤣 but such a nuisance for you to lose a fence panel.. @mich it’s been very rough here in Devon… as it has been across a lot of the south but amazing how resilient the flowers are…

You too @susanhumphrey333 !! Thank you @bigemrg hopefully not long now! And yes mine too @juliesgarden prefer them to the traditional daffs as they can be a bit "blousey" for me.. however the garden is full of traditional types of all descriptions!
