Yet More Windy Weather

I’d been hoping that yesterday’s windy weather would go away so that we could get some weed control fabric down on the allotment. However that wasn't the case as Tuesday was even windier with a maximum gust speed of 23 mph and average wind speed for the day of 5.6 mph the windiest May day I've recorded.

Temperature and Wind Speed Records Sunday 10 May 2015 - Tuesday 12 May 2015
For the record the maximum gust speed I've recorded in May was on 09 May 2014 at 28.0 mph but the average wind speed that day was 3.6 mph indicating that the windy weather that day didn't last very long whereas on Tuesday we didn't have such a strong gust but it was windier for a much longer spell.

In the greenhouse protected from the strong winds our Lewisia is putting on a fine display.
We really do need to find it a better pot.

  1. While it still holds together the pot has character, and I have a natural empathy with anything flaking a little around the edges !
