I've just had a brief wander to assess the damage and feed the birds. It's wiped me out though, I feel utterly rubbish. Mr B has yet again fixed the greenhouse and tidied up some post storm carnage 😇 hopefully some of the battered shrubs recover, my euphorbia were looking great until now. Anyway back to my sick bed and rubbish TV.

oh hope you feel better soon, your plants will bounce back im sure once we get some warmer days, greenhouse n bench can be repaired etc, as long as know one hurt that's main thing! our bench ended up our pond in the last lot of wind, so surprised as it's a really heavy bench, just shows the power of the wind! @DeborahBanks

It's coming on much better then last year now it's had some feed and care and its not surrounded by weeds and grass. #green . Sorry I know its done it twice but if I remove one I'll get the dreaded green screen.

Hi ya 👋🏻 @DeborahBanks yes! I’m hoping to be on more frequently. The app was annoying me but it’s recently been updated which seems to have helped. Home life been busy too. How are you ? Just trying to catch up on what’s been happening.

I don’t think our gardens will ever be truly finished @DeborahBanks as every year they evolve. My garden is on hold, we have decided to sell after 15 years. So I’m on strict instructions not to buy anything plant orientated, yeah right lol 😂

Wow that's exciting, do you think you'll dig up or leave your plants when you move @Cazx

We’ve not found anywhere yet, looking for a bungalow. Ours sold with 24 hours!! Taking all my tropical plants ferns, succulents and banana plants etc and my sambuca plant. They took a while to purchase and grow. Ideally I’d love to take them all, bought so many from SCG gutted to be leaving them. Although I may sneak the odd one or two in the van lol @DeborahBanks

Exciting new garden find today, 2 clumps of rhubarb in a raised bed of weeds and grass I've inherited. I shall mourn the loss of my rhubarb no more! 😊😊😊

Rhubarb crumble is lovely

@plants yes but unfortunately too calorific for me. It is nice with vanilla yogurt, overnight oats and porridge. The BBC food website has a gorgeous recipe for rhubarb and custard cake. It even manages to make me look like I can bake!

That looks so healthy. You’ve reminded me that I haven’t pulled any yet...Will rectify that later 😃
