wild windstorm last night
Anyone have any damage from the wind?
I woke up to two arbors on the ground - one with a huge passionflower vine and the other with a brazilian night shade. Of course , I had been too lazy to dig holes and fill with cement, so I can only blame myself. I think the vines will survive and I rushed up to HD to get cement and will do the job properly in the morning.
The wind also picked up my heavy thunbergia on the east side of the fence and turned it completely upside down! Trying to push it back up was impossible, so I guess that's getting cut back tomorrow too.
In addition, lots of branches down and broken plants. I spent the day tying up things with rope - those of you who think my garden is swell, ought to see it now!! lol
But the good news is that we got some much needed rain.
So how come no one forecast 45 mph winds in my area?
Not that it would have made any difference, I guess.
The joys of tropical gardening...but , hey, I love it, really.
