Hazel, you wouldn't want to see our weather map tonight, possibly the worst weather coming that I'll have seen in my life. Hate to think what it will do to my garden. I have put things like potted roses, Hippeastrums, Irises and Frangiani cuttings under cover, my sheep and ponies are all locked up .... hope we aren't flooded out. A friend in South Australia said it's been horrendous, thunder like she's never heard before and such heavy rain she couldn't see her neighbor's house(and it's close). Wish us luck! Farmer's crops will be totally ruined by this I reckon.
Anyway, taken before the storms.... the striped Harry Wheatcroft. The lovely soft pink named The Children's Rose, and the more subtly striped Tropical Sunset.
