Britain was hit by storms yesterday as almost a month's worth of rain fell in just one day, putting an end to the Indian summer.
In Worcester we enjoyed temperatures as high as 64F (18C) over the past week. But winds of up to 70mph and heavy downpours hit the county overnight as a deep low pressure tracked across the UK.
Did we worry? No, all the Cannas that we are keeping are snug in our poly tunnels, watered and fed, and the next thing will be frosts that destroy the foliage and flowers that are still working away in the tunnels. There is no prediction of frosts in the next 10 days, so we can concentrate on other gardening activities in the next week or so.
