Yesterday in the garden was so overcast with misty rain!

and we still cover hubby's spuds from night frosts..

My tunnel toms,peppers and pumpkins are covered every night too, I am taking NO chances!!

Well, the weather in Ireland is really testing our gardens now!

I had to cycle to the shop today in between storms,rain and hailstones.The wind was so strong that the rain was blowing vertically across the tops of my tunnels and hothouse roofs!

I have my camping torches at the ready tonight in case the power goes out! And it is suppose to continue like this for the rest of the week!!!

Oh....just found the Flyover to roundabout ;)

Comment by Catherine Cronin (Ireland) on April 16, 2012 at 1:16pm

Here's our Magic Roundabout before they added a flyover to make it more confusing. If you miss a turnoff you could end up anywhere in the world...LOL!

Dear God and his Mother Mary...That beats all Roundabouts....I got dizzy looking at it...LOL! I would prefer to get the bus!!!!!!

We have a roundabout here in Cork that's called the "Magic" Roundabout......it would really be magic if you got around it safely..LOL!

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on April 16, 2012 at 12:42pm

When Jon was accepted to get his wish to Ireland, we knew of 1 roundabout locally here, and every chance we had to visit it hubby would practice going around it.

"I hear you, Lynda, regarding getting out in the garden whenever you can. Sorry to hear you are dealing with some health issues but it looks like you don't let that get in the way of creating beauty in your garden."

"Charlotte, I do feel blessed that my husband shares my passion for gardening. Your harsh climate in Oklahoma does make it especially challenging for you, but I'm guessing it also makes gardening even more rewarding when your efforts pay off."
