@clipperty that's what I said to myself any other year I would have been devestated but relishing in the rain knowing it's exactly what we all need including the farmers and wildlife too so a few extra flowers in vases isn't bothering me this year 😄

I took evasive action with the tall dahlias and cut them for indoors before the wind had them. My amaranthus was tied to the palm tree as they were being flattened. We really can't win with this weather but I do agree we all desperately needed the wet stuff

Ah that’s such a shame. I’ve found a few broken branches and a couple of Cannas snapped but nothing serious. Maybe take cuttings from like Hayley mention?
