The waind is getting up and i think we are going to get a batterinv from it. It doent help that i live in a village in the welsh vallys on the side of a v large hill. My garden is very exposed so my poor bay ened up on the ground quite a bit untill i tied it to the mine prop that us the poll of my washing line. I think the wose is going ti hit overnight and the early hours of the morning. 🤞 they both are ok

It was a bit of a bargain I couldn't pass up Sue @susanhumphrey333 hope it will be happy here .. lots of grit and John innes in the pot they hate cold and wet in the winter so drainage very important, thank you it's my morning coffee and after work chill out spot 🙂
