Storms can't stop the flowers

It obviously takes more than 70 mph winds and torrential rain to stop the flowers. A few (very) late deep red roses are blooming away, and hellebores are coming on apace, as well as hordes of paperwhites. It's looking promising for the two weddings next week.

However, most of the gardens are all but under water, standing water sits over all the half hardy annuals optimistically sown early, I fear they will not survive. Masses of weeding is still in waiting, it may be waiting for a very long time. The greenhouse is now a green house as it is completely sheeted in green tarpaulins after gusts removed panes. But spring will one day come again and all will one day be well. I hope.
