Argh! Little seedlings just up and this happens!

I suppose it's just a typical British summer.
All my little seedlings are just about 2 cms above the ground - fresh, green and tender.
They have sprouted quickly in this warm, wet weather.
And then we had this hailstorm last night.
It rattled on the roof and clattered on the windows - I just had to take a look!
Chilly - very chilly.
However, the thundery sky cleared and I noticed there was still a bit of light around 10 o'clock.
This morning they look fine - I needn't have worried. That's nature for you.

We are hoping for a warm dry weekend and good luck for Shrewsbury Town playing in the playoffs in Torquay!!
Happy weekend everyone - I hope Blogger is behaving itself today.

Argh. It's amazing how much running around the weather and the seeds cause...entirely out of proportion! Glad all seems well though!

blimey o'reilly! Hailstorms in the midst of May, as you say Jo, just a typical British Summer really isnt it!

Glad they seem to have survived though, nothing worse than to lose them before they even begin!

Darn weather anyway..... you just never know what we will be served up....

Yesterday here was a beautiful day...then the wind really kicked up and huge ugly black clouds appeared...just at dark.... somehow...nothing more happened. Today...clear as a bell and wild winds.... we'll see if it blows in something, but at least for now it is okay.....hope all your little plants survived...

It's not going well at the Shewsbury Town play offs at the moment :( (half time and Torquay are winning 2-0)

There's nothing like our part of the world for highlighting the changes in the weather.

I've heard the summer is going to be a massive heat wave ;)

Beautiful here today, until I got absorbed watching the latest Dr Who episode.He is 'a bit gorgeous, that Matt Smith ;) The weather knew this and that's when it decided to rain on the washing I'd put out ...sigh! There's always a pay back
